a few years of practice in both design offices and on site, following an exam arranged by the Chamber of Engineers),

› persons with graduate studies and an M.Sc. degree who have completed a specialised training course and passed the exam at the Ministry of Construction, Spatial Planning and Housing,

› persons who have completed at least one year of postgraduate study in architecture, construction, environmental engineering, energy or related subjects, e.g., in energy auditing for thermo-modernisation or energy certificate purposes.

In order to create the conditions for the setup of adequate training, on the 21st of January 2008 the Minister of Infrastructure signed the Ordinance on the scope of training and the required examination for experts who wish to be qualified to issue energy performance certificates, to meet the requirements of article 10 of the EPBD. According to the Ordinance, there are no specific requirements for institutions offering training courses. Conversely, the scope and method of training, the form of the certificate, together with the training fees are subject to regulation. The scope of training is described in detail in the annex to the Ordinance. The regulations intend to promote an objective, fair and efficient verification of candidate certification experts’ skills, taking into account the real costs of the training and examination, and the condition for registering experts.

Twenty-eight post-graduate courses for future energy experts have already been launched by Technical Universities.

Polish regulations that implement the EPBD do not provide for a national register of certificates. The Authorities have not made provision for a system of direct control of the quality of certificates.

All potential conflicts between qualified experts and building owners will be solved by the Courts. The Construction Act (art. 5 paragraph 6) clearly states that an energy certificate that contains false information is a “physical failure of product” according to Civil Law (Parliament Act from the 23rd of April 1964). The Ministry of Infrastructure is working on alternatives to change this situation.

7 > Inspection of energy efficiency of installations

General requirements of the frequency and scope of different inspections of buildings are regulated by the Construction Act– article 62. The implementation of the EPBD resulted in new obligations for:



Periodical inspections of boilers, including an assessment of the energy efficiency of the boiler and the boiler sizing compared to the heating needs • at least once every 2 years – boilers fired by a non-renewable liquid or solid fuel of an effective rated output over 100 kW

• at least once every 4 years – boilers fired by a non-renewable liquid or solid fuel of an effective rated output of 20 kW to 100 kW and gas fired boilers.



Periodical inspections of air-conditioning systems of an effective rated output of more than 12 kW: this inspection shall include an assessment of the efficiency of the devices and their size compared to the cooling needs.

› A one-off inspection of heating installations with boilers of an effective rated output of more than 20 kW, which are older than 15 years: the inspection shall include an assessment of the boiler’s efficiency and sizing compared to the heating requirements of the building.

The inspections of boilers, heating installations and air-conditioning systems will be performed by engineers and technicians eligible for supervising installation works.

The procedures of inspection of boilers and AC systems are still under discussion.
