Airtightness testing: status and trends in competent tester schemes in the UK, Denmark and BelgiumOver the past few years, there has been an increasing number of airtightness tests performed in Europe either for specific high performance buildings programmes or for a wide range of buildings in regulatory contexts. This has led to the development of competent tester schemes to contain potential legal and competition issues.

The implementation of the EPBD recast puts increasing pressure on the market to achieve better building and ductwork airtightness: for most European climates and countries, good airtightness levels are necessary to achieve nearly zero-energy buildings.   You will learn about legislative drivers that have brought to light new concerns and stimulated new initiatives. We will discuss recent trends in European regulations as well as field studies supporting the development of competent testing schemes.    AGENDA
