EPBD article19a: take a Survey on Feasibility Study
We are glad to invite you to an online consultation on the possible introduction of the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems in Europe.
EPBD directive and inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems: the EPBD 19a project
The EPBD, amending Directive (EU) 2018/844 which entered into force in July 2018, introduced several new provisions. In particular, Article 19a introduces the requirement to perform a feasibility study addressing two issues: the possible introduction of inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems and the possible introduction of an optional building renovation passport. DG ENER from the European Commission awarded the contract to perform the study to a consortium led by INIVE and BPIE (find complete information on the website of the initiative: www.epbd19a.eu).
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.
Your contribution to the Inspection of Ventilation Systems Survey
Given your knowledge, experience, and unique perspective on the topic, we invite you to take part in the consultation for the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems, by filling in this survey.
The results of the survey will then feed the study and our research. If you want your voice to be heard, please fill in this survey by April 15, 2019. It should not take you more than 15-20 minutes to complete it. For any questions or comments, please contact us.
Building Renovation Passport Survey
Please note that another survey concerning the feasibility study which relates to building renovation passports is ongoing simultaneously. You are welcome to contribute to this survey.
