Found this via the Energy Performance Certificates for All blog:

   On 22nd August 2007, Faero Ltd’s board unanimously agreed that Faero Ltd should immediately cease to trade, and proceed towards corporate dissolution. The reasons are set out in the Notification of ceasing to trade      

Whilst the website is now not functioning, old pages exist in most search engines caches. From this page:

 These assessors are individuals who have registered with one of the Authorised Energy Rating Organisations (AEROs). To register, they have had to pass a test of competence, and following registration they are regularly monitored to show their work continues to be up to scratch.  

There was a strange situation a few months back where Hevacomp was an accredited SAP software (which the majority of building services engineers have access to) but unless the individual using the software was also with one of FAERO’s accredited companies (such as Elmhurst or NHER), the calculations were not able to be given to Building Control without checking by BC. What the situation is now with regards to the validity of SAP calculations done by, say, a chartered CIBSE engineer on Hevacomp as opposed to those done by a newly qualified EPC home inspector is unclear. I know which I would prefer, but I also know how much both would cost!
