building analyst energy firms and individuals

This regulation should have exemptions added because firms such as the air conditioning industry, architectual and engineering firms are performing this function already as a part of their business, they should not be subjected to additional regulations.

Only those that actullay open a new business in the energy analyst field  should be subjected to passing a test like a tradsman certificate.
