EEPLIANT3 – Residential Ventilation Units (RVU) (GEN – 1054.00)

17 September 2019

3 min read

GEN – 1054.00. On 30 August 2019 Eurovent was invited to attend the kick-off meeting on 4 September. Due to the tight deadline it was not possible for Eurovent to be present. The EEPLIANT meetings are open for the participating Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs)that for specific meetings invite stakeholders. The minutes of the first meeting on RVU will be shared with Eurovent and the consortium is looking for input from industry by 30 October.

Work Package (WP) 10 – (Residential) Ventilation Units

This WP will be led by the Uwe Leonhard and Nicolas Oberste-Lehn of the German Landesamt für Mess un Eichwesen Rheinland Pfalz (LME RL). The coordinator is the Dane Bjarne Hansen of Vores Bureau.

10 participants are involved, of which 8 are MSAs (Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey).

The focus of this lies solely with residential ventilation units and the project started in July 2019 and will end by March 2021. It is planned have document and on-line inspections of 60 to 70 RVUs between October 2019 and May/August 2020and to test 36 RVUs units between November 2019 and March 2021 of which 7 would be subject in 2021 to triple testing.

The selection would apply only to those RVU where the manufacturer has declared them for exclusively residential ventilation.

Presentation 4 September 2019 (GEN – 1054.01)

The presentation was concise, and the Member States have been asked to compile a list of manufacturers and importers in the countries of the eight participants by 20 September.

During the project the Consortium and participating MSAs will check whether the product model (60 to 70 models will be selected) has been registered EPREL and if the necessary documents are uploaded as well as the verification of the mandatory product information on the manufacturers’ website. This should take place between October 2019 and May/August 2020.

Based on this exercise ideas to develop recommendations for MSAs or future actions could be envisaged.

Note: EPREL has suffered from lack of resources, as some (IT-) persons were reallocated to other projects. The Commission has indicated that by end of October EPREL would be accessible for MSAs. The public would be able to access EPREL in early 2020.

Requested input from stakeholders, such as Eurovent

Do you know any kind of screening technics for evaluate RVU’s?

  • On-site testing
  • Stop points in lab test
  • Evaluation based on technical characteristics?
  • Not for compliance test but to help focus on most relevant products

Which manufacturers and importers exist in the Member States?

  • Members (and non-members) of trade organisations e.g.?

Product categories:

  • Which are the most important RVU categories (the sales split on the different categories)?
  • Are some of the categories according to your knowledge more troublesome regarding compliance than other?

What do you see as market problems?

Your wishes to the outcome of EEP3 WP10?

Recommended Actions

Manufacturers of RVUs are recommended to check their websites and to introduce their products in EPREL. It is strongly recommended to structure the product information within the company as it is very likely that the manufacturers of 60 to 70 analysed RVUs will have to provide information within 10 days (as has happened in a previous study where manufacturers of large fans were asked to do so).

The Eurovent Product Group ‘Residential Air Handling Units’ is asked to consider the requests so that a reply can be prepared.
