CIBSE calls for mandatory lodging of ac inspections

CIBSE is now calling for the lodgement of air conditioning inspections to be made mandatory. With the implementation of lower 12kW threshold for air conditioning inspections on January 4th, most air conditioned spaces of over 2,000ft2 now fall within the regulations and CIBSE feels it is time to act on compliance.
'CIBSE believes it is the ideal time to introduce the mandatory lodgement of air conditioning inspections to help monitor compliance,' said Hywel Davies, CIBSE Technical Director. 'It will enable us to build up a national picture of air conditioning.'

The Government has announced that it will take forward proposals to make it mandatory to lodge air conditioning reports following an industry wide consultation, but the timescales are still to be determined.

'Implementing a mandatory lodgement requirement for air conditioning inspections will bring an increased focus on these inspections,' said Hywel Davies, CIBSE's technical director. 'Air conditioning inspections have the lowest compliance rates, we think below 5%. The industry needs to increase compliance to achieve carbon emissions reductions targets and increase the energy efficiency of buildings.'
