By the end of 2017 NEN decided to update the existing national Energy Performance standards in The Netherlands. The planning was to finalise this work within roughly one year. This short time frame was based on the requirement in the EPBD to report to the Commission by March 2020. The new national method should be operational by 2020. It was estimated that final checking and preparing and distributing reliable software based on this national method should at least take one year.

Energy performance calculation has been required well before requirements by the EPB directive, like in several other European countries. Regulation 10/91 of 1991 and its application decree DPR 412/93 of 1993 first asked for an energy performance calculation and demonstration of minimum energy performance levels to get a building permit. At that time calculation and requirements were limited to heating service in new buildings.

French experts involved in the French building regulation and national EPBD implementation contribute also to the EPB standards development at European level. Therefore, the French building regulation and transposition of the EPBD and the EPB standards are in line regarding the principles and the general structure. But sometimes the French regulation differ in the details, mostly due to different timelines and already existing national methods.
