Eurovent Certita Certification (ECC) has developed a new certification programme for Indoor Air Quality and Energy Efficiency of Ventilation Systems (IAQVS) for residential applications. The programme covers mechanical ventilation systems for single dwellings (single family homes and apartments). Kick off online meetings are planned for 04, 12 and 20 May 2021.
In advance of the second Ad-Hoc Working Group (AHWG2) meeting to be held in the format of a webinar on 29 and 30 May 2018, the second criteria proposals have been published on the JRC Product Bureau website.
On 22 December 2017, the European Commission released its ‘draft exchange model’ to test the future database EPREL, which is going to be of relevance for many Eurovent members. A first demonstration of EPREL will be given during the upcoming meeting. Eurovent is going to attend the meeting and provide an in-depth summary. A webinar is going to follow.
The first meeting with stakeholders on the scoping study took place on 17 January 2018. The aim is to define the product scope, identify focus areas and the direction to take for the subsequent preparatory study, and ultimately determine and draft policy options in line with the Ecodesign Directive.
The preparatory ENTR Lot 9 study on “enterprise servers” that ran between 2013 and 2015 did not result in a proposal for a regulation. The European Commission asked for an additional study by Intertek that was published mid/late 2016. The scope of the study moved from “enterprise servers” to “data centres”. In February 2017, a Consultation Forum took place.
On 22 December 2017, the European Commission released its ‘draft exchange model’ to test the future database EPREL. The first set of comments will be collected by 12 February 2018. The formal registrations in EPREL will start in November 2018. What does this mean for members?
The European Commission has launched a review study of the regulation on Ecodesign and Labelling requirements for air conditioners and comfort fans. The study covers the review of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 206/2012 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 626/2011. The draft interim report (task 1-2) has been published on 13 June 2017, it will serve as the background document for the upcoming stakeholder meeting on 5 July 2017. The Eurovent Team has summarised the review study’s objectives and will attend this stakeholder meeting.
The contract for this review study was given to VHK and started started in January 2016. It may be of interest to the members dealing with hot water production and those affected by the legislation on space heaters.
