On 7 December 2009, RICS launched its third status report on the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) in the 27 EU Member States. This report is a final assessment of the current EPBD as the implementation period has now ended and the recast directive takes shape. This report provides facts and figures as well as an overview of where and why there still are gaps in individual Member States. It also highlights the skill and qualification requirements to practice as energy inspectors, requirements which differ greatly differ from one country to the other.
