EU feasibility study inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems (GEN – 998.00)

20 February 2019

2 min read

GEN – 998.00. The revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) 2018/1844 requires the Commission to conclude a feasibility study, clarifying the possibilities and timeline to introduce the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems and an optional building renovation passport before 2020. This study has just been launched.

Technical study to be finished by 31 December 2019

The Commission has contracted a consortium in November 2018, to investigate the feasibility of two options:

  1. Inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems
  2. Optional building renovation passport

Eurovent and EVIA had provided a letter of support to CETIAT when responding to the call for these studies. CETIAT is part of the consortium led by INIVE (http://www.inive.org/) and BPIE (http://bpie.eu/).

François Durier (CETIAT) will be the leading person for the work on inspection of ventilation systems.

The initial questions addressed by Durier to Eurovent and EVIA are:

  1. Data on market and stock of ventilation systems in the EU

CETIAT should draw up a picture of the stock of installed ventilation systems in buildings in the EU, and of its evolution considering the market figures. For this, it is asking if Eurovent could provide additional data on the market of ventilation systems in the EU, preferably with details of ventilation system categories and of countries, as well as data on the stock of installed ventilation systems.

  1. Market trends towards 2050 (here, reference can be made to Ecodesign Impact Accounting with forecasts up to 2050)
  2. Possible inspection of approaches depending on the national/local context

For example: no inspection, because commissioning and maintenance are operated by trained and certified workers, or, on the opposite, a mandatory initial and regular full inspection of ventilation systems.

For this, François Durier could be invited to one or more meetings of relevant Eurovent Product Groups.

Stakeholder participation

Throughout this study, the consortium will seek to engage with stakeholders to collect their input and viewpoints, through:

  1. A digital survey to collect stakeholder feedback on ongoing schemes and initiatives
  2. Two stakeholder meetings, in which results of the study will be shared and discussed. The first stakeholder meeting will take place on 24 June 2019 in Brussels, during which interim results of the study will be presented.

Recommended Actions

Interested manufacturers and associations are recommended to check the recently launched project website www.epbd19a.eu and to register via https://goo.gl/forms/p4gIocP8cxdZvti62.

Because the project will be finalised before the end of 2019, the progress is expected to be swift.
