Appropriately qualified professional – multiple people - KBCN0864

The appropriately qualified professional role can be fulfilled by more than one person, for the purposes of the Quality Control criteria in the Quality Improvement assessment issue. The main intention of these credits is to ensure the outcomes outlined in the criteria are fulfilled by an appropriate person throughout the project. It is recognised that this will often require input from multiple people given the range of responsibilities and the competencies outlined in the appropriately qualified professional definition.

Appropriately Qualified Professional and BREEAM Accredited Professional - KBCN0852

A BREEAM AP does not automatically meet all aspects of the 'appropriately qualified professional' role defined under the Quality improvement issue. HQM assessors are currently the only people recognised as fulfilling the HQM knowledge and experience aspect of the ‘appropriately qualified professional’ role, for the purposes of this issue. However, this role can be fulfilled by more than one person. The main intention of these credits is to ensure the outcomes outlined in the criteria are fulfilled by an appropriate person throughout the project. It is recognised that this will often require input from multiple people given the range of responsibilities and the competencies outlined in the appropriately qualified professional definition.  

BREEAM AP and BREEAM assessor – conflict of interest - KBCN0196

An individual can be appointed as a BREEAM/HQM Assessor and BREEAM AP/Sustainability Champion for the same project, where the Assessor also holds current and applicable AP/Sustainability Champion credentials. If this route is chosen, it must be made clear when submitting the assessment that both roles are being carried out by the same person and confirmed how potential conflicts of interest are identified and managed. This will mean, when appropriate, that the assessment can be escalated to a more detailed level of quality assurance checking.
