Help sought for duct certification

5285654_lFRANCE: Eurovent Certita Certification is looking to form a committee to establish requirements for a new ventilation duct certification programme.

This certification programme will notably cover the air leakage limitation, which is an important consideration in the design and operation of ventilation systems. Indeed, a proper duct tightness reduces the energy consumption of the air distribution system and helps controlling the hygiene and indoor air quality levels.

Eurovent Certita Certification is setting up a launch committee, tasked with preparation of relevant reference documents and first choice of laboratory/test agency/audit agency if applicable.

If you are interested in participating or would like further information, contact Ms Marie-Clémence Degallaix [email protected].

Eurovent Certita Certification is a major European hvacr certification body, operating 35 certification programmes and generating about €10m in turnover.
