It is acceptable for an assessment type to be changed from interim (‘Design Stage’) to final (‘Post Construction’) between submissions for QA, i.e. after feedback has been received by the assessor from the BREEAM QA team and before resubmission.
When the assessor wishes to do this, the BREEAM QA Team must be informed in advance of resubmitting the assessment. It must also be stated clearly within the cover email/upload notes alongside the resubmission.
Upon resubmission of the assessment, a new audit will be carried out due to the change in stage. Therefore, the assessment will be subject to first submission timescales and additional certification fee (in line with FS036) will be applicable.
