In Sweden, the implementation of the EPBD is mainly on the joint respon- sibility of the Ministry of Enterprise together and the Ministry of Environ- ment. The responsibility of both the regulations on energy use (in the building regulation) and energy declaration of buildings is delegated through ordinances from the government to the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning.

2 > Status of the implementation

Certification of buildings

The National System for Energy declaration of Buildings (BED) came into force on 1st of March 2007. The BED aims to achieve two primary objec- tives: to save energy, while ensuring comfortable conditions and accept- able indoor air quality. The National Board of Housing, Building and Plan- ning, Boverket, is the managing body for this process. The Supervision of the regulations is the responsibility of the local authorities in the 290 mu- nicipalities in Sweden.

The timetable to implement the Energy declaration of buildings in various types of buildings is divided into two phases until its full implementation in January 2009:



In the first phase - all existing “Special buildings” greater than 1000m2 (public buildings) and buildings that are rented, must have an energy declaration (building certificate).

› In the second phase, all buildings sold or rented have to have a decla- ration not older than ten years.

› The second phase also includes buildings that are sold and new build- ings that have requested a building permit after the 1st of January 2009.

The system operates in conjunction with two sets of building regulations applied to construction, the Building Code (BBR) and the Regulations for Compulsory control of ventilation systems (OVK).

The summary of the Energy declaration is the most visible aspect of the BED. This document assigns an energy performance label to residential and non-residential buildings and records the energy performance of the build- ing, the reference values of similar new buildings and an interval with ref- erence to similar existing buildings of comparable age, heating system, and geographic/climatic aspects.

There are two reference values, one comparing with the demands in the building code for new buildings, and one compiled from the statistical val- ues from the national energy statistics.

The summary of the Energy Certificate also records if the level of ionizing radon gas has been measured and whether the compulsory ventilation check has been carried out. It also must state where the full information for the Energy declaration can be found. The full results from the energy declaration is registered in a national register administered by Boverket, where the building owner can see the results for his building and the ex- pert can see the results of their work. The information should be kept by the building owner, and can be requested from the national register by anyone requiring the information.

By the end of June 2008 more than 8100 Energy Certificates have been reg- istered in the web based central registration system that experts must ac- cess and use to issue certificates. This way, a national database of certi- fied buildings is being continually supplied with information that will be useful for monitoring the progress of different aspects of the implementa- tion of the directive, from basic statistics such as the number of declared
