Evaporative cooling equipment manufacturers elaborate on the possible exemption of their products from EU Fan Regulation 327/2011

During the Consultation Forum on the revision of the ‘EU Fan Regulation’ 327/2011 in Brussels on 30 April, Eurovent had reinforced its call for an exemption of evaporative cooling equipment from the future Regulation, which was supported by several Member State Representatives. Subsequently within the meeting, the Commission has asked VHK to further elaborate on this issue and on how an exemption can be implemented without creating loopholes.

Registration open: 16-17 March 2015, Workshop, Lund, Sweden – Voluntary and Regulatory Frameworks to Improve Quality and Compliance of Ventilation and Airtightness

Although ventilation and airtightness are covered in most countries by various regulations focused on energy performance and/or indoor air quality, the effectiveness of these regulations is often called into question. A number of studies have shown significant deviations between assumed and actual characteristics of the building or equipment, possibly resulting in non-compliance to the regulation and/or degraded performance.
