Letter to the Editor : Our red tape
“This was based on my gruesome experience with Display Energy Certificates, including the latest setback where the modifications made by DCLG in January (with no consultation, apart from the accreditation agencies which of course have an interest in promoting inane box-ticking procedures) increase the bureaucracy whilst subtracting value and creating confusion by meeting the letter of the recast Directive whilst totally ignoring the spirit.”

With luck it will stimulate more correspondence, but since it was at the bottom right hand corner of the page, I imagine the Editor is more likely to have regarded it as the closing letter on that particular topic.” - Bill Bordass
