Legal Notice for the EPC and issued by the same date, i.e., beginning of August 2008. The legislation will establish the 2nd January 2009 as the date of coming into force of the one-off inspection and certification of the whole heating installation in the case of new buildings as defined previously for the EPC.

The new Legal Notice concerning hot water boiler inspections and certification will stipulate that;



For all existing heating installations with boilers of an effective rated output of more than 20kW, even those that are older than 15 years, the first inspection shall be made compulsory between 2nd January 2009 and 1st January 2010.

› For boilers fired by non-renewable liquid or solid fuel and of an effective rated output of between 20kW and 100kW, an inspection will be carried out every 4 years following their date of first commissioning and registration.

› For boilers with an effective rated output over 100kW, an inspection will be carried out every 2 years following their date of first commissioning and registration.

› For gas-fired boilers, an inspection will be carried out every 4 years following their date of first commissioning and registration.

Certification of boilers/heating systems will be done by Services Engineers who possess a warrant and who will also be required to follow a short induction course on the methodology that is being adopted and are thereby afterwards registered with the Malta Resources Authority.

Inspection of air conditioning

Information Seminars:

With regard to the inspection of air-conditioning (A/C) systems, Malta is working at finalising methodologies based on CEN standards and these are envisaged to be ready by the end of August 2008. Transposition is also incorporated in the same Legal Notice for the EPC and will be issued by the same date, i.e., in August 2008. The proposed legislation establishes the date of 2nd January 2009 as the date of coming into force of the one-off inspection and certification of the whole A/C installation system in the case of new buildings. Keeping in view that A/Cs are widely used in Malta and that they can also be a source of energy wastage, it is envisaged that a regular inspection of such systems will be imposed on the date of first commissioning and registration, with subsequent inspections at least every 5 years.

It is also envisaged that; › As from the 2nd January 2009, owners of air-conditioning units, or a number of split air-conditioning units installed in any one property or building, or centralised system, with an effective rated output of more than 12kW whether in dwellings, or other buildings are to ensure that such units or systems are inspected by an assessor at regular intervals.



In the case of existing buildings having existing installations with an effective rated output of 250kW or more, a one-off inspection and certification of the whole system is to be made and a certificate is to be in the possession of the owner or tenant of the building, within 12 months from the date of 2nd January 2009. This has to be followed by inspections and certifications at regular intervals not exceeding five years.



In the case of existing buildings having existing installations with an effective rated output of more than 12kW and less than 250 kW an inspection and certification has to be made and a certificate is to be in the possession of the owner or tenant of the building, within 24 months from the 2nd January 2009. This has to be followed by an inspection and certification at regular intervals not exceeding five
