Guide to EPBD IEQ requirements

BELGIUM: Eurovent, REHVA and Nordic Ventilation Group have launched a common proposal on how to implement Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) requirements introduced by EPBD under revision. 

New indoor environmental quality (IEQ) provisions added to Article 11 and 11a by the Commission’s and Parliament’s initiative, represent an important step forward to assure healthy and comfortable IEQ in buildings.

The Eurovent/REHVA/Nordic document explains the IEQ substance and requirements in just a few pages. It indicates which items need regulatory effort and which aspects can be left for technical guidance documents such as European standards or national technical guidance. 

Guidelines and examples are presented on how essential IEQ requirements can be implemented on national level. Also, some minor, but important changes are suggested to make Article 11a implementation technically and economically feasible.

It is available for download free of charge from the Eurovent document library.
