On behalf of our Team, we would like to wish you a very nice holiday season. It is our wish that 2020 brings all of us many new business opportunities, and a lot of professional growth, health, and happiness. For the Eurovent Association and its Chapter Eurovent Middle East, this year was marked with many important developments, of which we would like to share a few. The Eurovent review 2019 can be downloaded via this link.
As you may already know, the Eurovent Association is switching to a new membership structure as of 1 January 2020. After this date, manufacturer participation in working groups and access to the Extranet will be reserved for contributing members only (i.e. Corresponding Members). Read on to find out more about this change and learn what to do in order to keep all your Eurovent benefits.
From 2 to 5 October 2019, the Eurovent Association, Eurovent Middle East, and Eurovent Certita Certification are going to be at ISK-SODEX 2019 – one of the largest international exhibitions for HVACR, Pumps, Valves, Fittings, Water Treatment, and Insulation. Eurovent will be at your disposal for requests concerning legislation, standardisation, certification, and general industry developments.
Eurovent offers the Legislation Database as one of the many features of the restricted section of its website. It collects all EU legislation of relevance for the HVACR industry in one place, including not only the regulatory texts, but also preparatory studies, impact assessments, review studies, references to harmonised standards, and European Commission guidelines and FAQ documents.
Representatives of ISKID (Turkey’s Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association) and Eurovent signed an agreement to jointly organise the 2020 EUROVENTSUMMIT. They announced that the next edition of Europe’s major gathering for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies will take place in Antalya, Turkey, from 22 to 25 September 2020.
The Eurovent Team is listening to your feedback and constantly working to further improve the Eurovent website. The latest, recently launched feature allows website visitors to filter our Document Web Shop by language to not miss any important documents released in their native language.
Morten Schmelzer, Executive Director of Eurovent, leaves the association effective as of 1 June 2019 after 6 successful years of serving Europe’s HVACR industry. He is going to join a member company while further developing his own IT business. Stijn Renneboog, who has recently joined the organisation, and Andrea Gasparova are going to take over the majority of Morten’s tasks.
Braga, Portugal, 24 May 2019. During their 62nd Annual Meeting hosted by EFRIARC (Portuguese association of Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers), the Eurovent members have elected Naci Sahin (FRITERM, Turkey) for a second term as President of Europe’s Industry Association for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies. The General Assembly has furthermore adopted a new membership structure, which shall ensure the long-term sustainability of the Eurovent Association beyond the background of changing boundary conditions.
On a monthly basis, the Eurovent Team compiles a global overview of the latest developments concerning new standardisation activities and technical regulations of relevance for the HVACR industry. Our Notifications allow members to be prepared for developments that can have an impact on them and their products.
