Updated version of FAQ document on EU ventilation unit regulations released

European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) and Eurovent jointly provide new guidance to market on Ecodesign and Energy labelling rules for ventilation units

Brussels, 8 March 2017. The European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) and the Eurovent Association have come together to release the third edition of a joint comprehensive FAQ on Ecodesign and Energy labelling requirements for ventilation units. It aims to provide answers to the many questions the market still has concerning EU Regulations 1253/2014 and 1254/2014 to ensure their proper implementation.

Building on the two first versions of the FAQ, this document is the result of an intensive work carried out by EVIA and Eurovent members based on their experience with other market participants, such as their customers (designers, installers, architects). It therefore constitutes EVIA’s and Eurovent’s contribution to a better understanding of the Regulations and to their more uniform and coherent application across different sectors and product groups across the market. It reflects the views of a vast majority of manufacturers of ventilation units as well as other market participants in Europe and the Middle East and Europe’s leading national sector associations.

This document is addressed to the industry, but also the European Commission, EU Member States, enforcement bodies and others stakeholders who need to be informed of the provisions of these Regulations (e.g. trade and consumer  associations standardisation bodies, manufacturers, importers, distributors, conformity assessment bodies and trade unions).

The publication is intended solely as a Guidance Document – only the text of the Union harmonisation act itself has legal force. It is not a static document and aims to incorporate additional questions and answers over time.
