The second QUALICHeCK Conference “EPBD Review – Elements for better compliance and quality of works” took place on 4 September 2015 at the VEA Auditorium in Brussels.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive recast introduced in 2010 two important articles requiring Member States to implement independent control systems for the Energy Performance Certificates (article 18) and penalties in case of non-compliance (article 27). Although often overlooked, these aspects are essential to meet the overall goal of the EPBD, i.e., to generalise Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB) in practice.

The Commission has launched a public consultation process which will run until 31 October 2015 for the evaluation and review of the present EPBD.

The conference addressed the following aspects, among others:

  • The status on the ground regarding compliance and quality of the works, as emerged from field studies conducted within QUALICHeCK and discussions at the CA EPBD.
  • Key features to consider underway the road to improved compliance and quality of the works.
  • Perspectives in the context of the review of the EPBD.

As part of the review of Directive 2010/31/EU (EPBD) the following link will direct people to the evaluation survey:
