Dear Mr Longstaff, 
 
Thank you for your e-mail of 21 November to the Department for Communities and Local 
Government, requesting:  
 
Dear Department for Communities and Local Government, 
     Following previous freedom of information requests for numbers of 
     assessors registered with Landmark, it has come to my attention 
     that assessors on the register might have the following attached to 
     their details: "This assessor was registered with <Accreditation 
     Scheme>, however they are currently not practising." 
     
     Can you provide (as other have asked before me) up to date figures 
     for the following, but this time also include how many are not 
     currently practising: 
     
     1. Home Inspectors (Active / Not currently practising) 
     
     2. Domestic Energy Assessors (Active / Not currently practising) 
     
     3. NDEA - level 3 (Active / Not currently practising) 
     
     4. NDEA - level 4 (Active / Not currently practising) 
     
     5. NDEA - level 5 (Active / Not currently practising) 
     
     This is a copy of previously requested information, however, with 
     the changes to the DEA qualification an update would be 
     appreciated. 
 
Your request has been considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
 
I can confirm that the Department for Communities and Local Government does hold the 
information that you have requested and that I am able to provide you with the following 
information. We can provide the number of qualified energy assessors by the status of 
their accreditation and the type of energy assessor.  We will provide this in the text of this 
letter.
