Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance
In 2013, the City of Boston enacted the Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO). This Ordinance requires Boston's large- and medium-sized buildings to report their annual energy and water use to the City of Boston, after which the City makes the information publicly available.
Non-residential buildings over 50,000 square feet, or any set of non-residential buildings on one lot over 100,000 square feet, must report their energy and water use and greenhouse gas emissions by September 15, 2014.
City of Boston Code Ordinance CBC 9-1.3 requires that property owners get newly rented apartments inspected prior to or within 45 days of rental and certified by the Housing Inspection Division.
