Inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems (GEN – 1013.00)

04 April 2019

2 min read

GEN – 1013.00. With Article 19a, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2018/844 (EPBD) introduced the requirement to perform a feasibility study on the possible introduction of inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems before the end of 2019.

Background to the feasibility study – article 19a of the EPBD

“The Commission shall, before 2020, conclude a feasibility study, clarifying the possibilities and timeline to introduce the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems and an optional building renovation passport that is complementary to the energy performance certificates, in order to provide a long-term, step-by-step renovation roadmap for a specific building based on quality criteria, following an energy audit, and outlining relevant measures and renovations that could improve the energy performance.”

In 2018, Eurovent and EVIA have indicated that they would support the consortium that would win the tender. The consortium led by INIVE and BPIE includes BBRI, CEREMA, CETIAT, EPB and REHVA.

Online consultation by 15 April 2019

Due to the very tight deadline, the consortium is hosting an online consultation that will run until 15 April 2019: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQLF6XF

Part of the study that concerns the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems includes:

  • Review on inspections of ventilation systems
  • Overview of the stock of ventilation systems in buildings and related evolution
  • Summary of the analysis performed on the possible scope of additional measures at EU-level in favour of the inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems
  • Selection of policy options for inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems and analysis of related potential impacts
  • Models used to quantify the impacts of policy options

Based on this, the study will assess the relevance, feasibility, timing and overall impacts of introducing EU provisions (legislative or non-legislative) for the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems in buildings. Possible provisions could, for example, include the development or improvement of technical standards, the establishment of guidelines and practices, or the introduction of regular inspection requirements for stand-alone ventilation systems.

The online survey contains 34 questions and will take 20 to 30 minutes to fill: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQLF6XF

Manufacturers may also be interested in participation of the survey into the development of a ‘building renovation passport’ that is also covered by the article 19a of the EPBD and can be found on the project website.

Eurovent has provided GEN – 1010.00 on the Ecodesign Impact Accounting to provide the consortium with a first idea regarding market and market developments.

Next steps

Two stakeholder meetings, indicatively on 24 June and 28 November will be hosted to discuss the preliminary results.

The Eurovent Product Group ‘Residential Air Handling Units’ (PG-RAHU) will meet at CETIAT, Lyon, and will have the opportunity to get initial insights in this study.

Recommended Actions

All manufacturers of ventilation units and those of related products (filters, fans) are recommended to participate in the survey before 15 April. It is important as it may shape future inspection of ventilation units and thus contribute to future market development.

Manufacturers may also be interested in participation of the survey into the development of a ‘building renovation passport’ that is also covered by the article 19a of the EPBD.
