Publication date

Scheme name


This document sets out our requirements for implementing a monitoring regime to evidence householder status under the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO).

Evidencing householder eligibility is a requirement for the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO). A monitoring regime is one of two ways in which suppliers can choose to meet this requirement (the other being audit).

ECO is a government energy efficiency scheme which places obligations on larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic energy users. ECO operates alongside the Green Deal.
