What is an EPBD Independent Expert?

Share this Post:

Article 10 of the EPBD states that "Member States shall ensure that the certification of buildings, the drafting of the accompanying recommendations and the inspection of boilers and air conditioning systems are carried out in an independent manner by qualified and/or accredited experts, whether operating as sole traders or employed by public or private enterprise bodies".

The minimum requirement for Independent Experts is to be "accredited" by a Member State as competent and to operate in a manner which guarantees independence, based upon objective criteria.
