European Communities Act 1972

This historical Act of Parliament made provision for the enlargement of the European Communities to include the United Kingdom, together with (for certain purposes) the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and Gibraltar.  Now largely repealed, it is relevant as the origin of the introduction of energy assessments to meet the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) which remains a guiding principle in UK public policy.
