Webinar: Product databases and compliance of input data for the Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) of buildings

Start/Stop Date:
28 Jun 2016
Webinar 11:00 - 12:20 CET - Brussels time
Focus Areas:
Product databases for EPCs of buildings
Type of Event:


Product databases provide validated information about the characteristics of construction products and building systems.

They can be used to determine input data for the energy performance rating of buildings on their Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), provided that the procedures of the national regulation authorise this.

Objectives of the webinar

  1. to show the findings of the QUALICHeCK project concerning the compliance of EPC input data and the links with product databases;
  2. to explore the potential of BIM (Building Information Modelling) as a future information source for EPC input data;
  3. to discuss the ways to check the compliance of EPC input data and to improve the compliance of EPCs, in relation with product databases.
