CT8 - Building codes and technical requirements

To be updated following adoption of the recast EPBD 

This Central Team will cross-cut multiple focus areas and collaborate with other central teams, where the use of building codes and technical requirements for new and existing buildings are relevant.

A key task is to identify and facilitate sessions around the many provisions in the EPBD that require transposition into national legislation and implementation through national building codes. The team will help enable the exchange of knowledge, experience and plans for the inclusion of the EPBD requirements into national building codes, the practical application of the building codes and the technical requirements for compliance with the codes. Topics will cover overall building performance, systems requirements and individual building element requirements.

Some elements handled by CT8 are linked to NZEB and ZEB definitions and the development of these as part of the new, recast EPBD.

Aspects on indoor air quality, ventilation and other technical building system requirements will also be part of the work of CT8.

Finally, the team will be responsible for addressing sustainable mobility requirements and the new solar energy requirements in the recast EPBD.
