How to get compliant and accessible data for the energy rating calculation of a building - Overview of some existing approaches       The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of a building will only be able to serve its purpose if it is considered trustworthy while minimising the risk of non‐compliance of the actual building with the minimum energy performance requirements of the regulations. In doing so, two are the key parameters to be fulfilled:

New buildings, as well as the renovated building stock, should aim not just for good energy performance but also for good quality of the works, as this is a prerequisite for high building energy performance. Various experiences show that there are cases where the quality of the works is a (major) issue of concern. This QUALICHeCK source book aims to provide guidelines and suggestions for better enforcement of quality of the works.

QUALICHeCK FACT SHEET #54: Ductwork airtightness in France: Regulatory context, control procedures, results  
Post date: 27 Apr 2017
Type: Publication

This paper presents the new framework for the realisation of reliable pressurisation tests in Belgium and the provisions taken to widen the number of buildings where a valid pressurisation test can be realised. The pressurisation test is described in standards. In Belgium, the measured airtightness performance can be used in the regional Energy Performance (EP) regulations in order to improve the calculated performance. A few years ago, supplementary specifications to the test standard (NBN EN 13829) describing detailed specific elements of the test, were added to the regulations.
