Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskning


The Directive uses the term “technical building system” in the Recitals and Articles 1, 2, 8 and 11. It is Article 8 that calls for minimum standards for energy performance, installation, dimensioning, adjustment and control. These standards are obligatory in existing buildings, and they refer to system performance rather than product performance or whole building
The extent to which MSs have found it practicable to introduce system standards for all the many technologies is not well known, though is now being investigated by the CA. A technical session at the CA meeting in Dubrovnik in May 2014 discussed the requirements of Article 8 (entitled “Technical Building Systems”) and how they were being implemented. Article 8 applies primarily to existing buildings, though it can optionally be extended to new
buildings too.
