Due to changes in the European Union's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), urgent issues have now arisen for Letting Agents & Owners or Operators. Please see the correct section below for information & advice.

Information for Letting Agents : URGENT! THIS AFFECTS YOUR COMPANY

*NOTIFICATION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION'S ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS DIRECTIVE (EPBD)*

Under the new European Union's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) inspections of all air-conditioning systems with a total cooling capacity over 12kWr are required at least every five years. The aim is to give building owners and operators information about the performance of their buildings' air-conditioning systems and to identify options to save energy and reduce operating costs.

From January 2009, it will be illegal to sell or let any commercial property without a current, valid air-conditioning inspection report covering all installed, in-scope equipment, including centralised systems, individual splits, multi-splits and heat pumps. By January 2009, all systems over 250kWr must be inspected. A first inspection of any new system over 12kWr installed since January 2008 is required within the next five years, with all other systems over 12 kWr inspected by January 2011. Subsequent inspections must then be commissioned every five years.

For the purpose of the regulation, the total KW rating is the cumulative total of all the individual air conditioning units in a building that the "relevant person" has the power to control the temperature of, i.e. each unit is taken to be a component of a single air conditioning system.

This is the direct responsibility of the Owner/Operator of the equipment.
