Has it really been 5 years since the first one we did?

Time does fly by and before you know it its been 5 years and if you are not careful the expiry date has been reached and suddenly you are not as compliant as you would like to be. Having been in this business since the beginning I can recall the first AC - TM44 reports we carried out and here I am now speaking with the same client about re issuing them.

Air conditioning inspections are required for all air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kw to be regularly inspected by an energy assessor.The inspections are to be no more than five years apart and the regulations to be carried out required the first inspection of the affected AC system are set out below.

  • Air conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 250kW the first inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2009
  • Air conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 12kW the first inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2011
  • A first inspection must have taken place within five years of the date when the system was first put into service on all AC systems put into service on or after 1 January 2008

Its easy to forget with all the legislation and various implementations of the Energy Performance Building Directive (EPBD). Its not been easy to keep up for my clients and who can blame them with all the various reports.....TM44 - EPC's - DEC's - ESOS - CRC - etc etc

At the time we had a bit of a "mad rush" as our clients understood that the impact of non compliance was far harsher than any of the other EPBD surveys and often impacted their Quality Systems and ISO Standards when externally audited.

Its time to check that diary and look into the Building Log Book and drop me a line if time has moved on a little quicker than you first thought.
