About Standards and Regulations

We participated in the development of the standards supporting the Energy Performance of Buildings directive, in particular:

  • EN 16798-7, leader and principal author, publication foreseen early 2018. Energy performance of buildings. Ventilation for buildings. Calculation methods for the determination of air flow rates in buildings including infiltration (Modules M5-5).
  • EN 16798-17, convenor of working group, leader and principal author, publication foreseen mid-2017. Energy performance of buildings. Part 17: Ventilation for buildings - Module M4-11, M5-11, M6-11, M7-11 - Guidelines for inspection of ventilation and air conditioning systems.
