How to comply with BEEO ordinance for new construction?

To build in Hong Kong you will need to follow the traditional BD submission format, and also fulfil the mandatory requirements detail in the Building Energy Code.  How does that impact the construction process?

The Owner must engage a EMSD Registered Energy Assessor (REA) to complete and issue EMSD Form EE1 also known as Stage 1 Certificate of Compliance Registration (COCR), and also EMSD form EE2 known as Stage 2 COCR.

When does CoCR need to be issued?

Stage 1 COCR must be submitted within two months after obtaining BD consent. For Stage 2 COCR, that must be submitted within four months after obtaining BD Occupation permit.

further details are provided on the EMSD website.
