Certification of buildings

The Act on Energy Certification of Buildings was approved by Parliament on 13 April 2007. According to the new act, the certificate must be presented when applying for a building permit for all new buildings from 1 January 2008. Other buildings when rented or sold must have an energy performance certificate from 1 January 2009. Certificates will not be required for holiday homes or buildings smaller than 50 m2, industrial premises, protected buildings and churches. Certificates will be optional for existing detached houses and apartment blocks consisting of no more than six homes, even when for sale or rent.

Energy certificates will be valid for 10 years for most buildings, and 4 years for new apartment blocks and commercial buildings. Certificates for new buildings will be provided by the principal designers of buildings.

Energy certificates for existing buildings can be issued in three different ways: 1) included in the property managers' certificate 2) issuing so called "separate energy certificate" or 3) in connection with an energy audit.

The type of the energy certificate does not depend on the type of building. The building owner can choose which kind of energy certificate he wants, although the first certificate type is possible for housing companies only.

In Finland, most apartment blocks are owned by housing companies. In these housing companies, people living in their own dwellings are shareholders. All decisions to improve the efficiency of the building are taken at a meeting of the shareholders. The shareholders also share the costs generated by energy certification or energy efficiency improvements. Most apartment blocks are connected to district heating with common energy metering for the whole housing company. In housing companies, a property managers' certificate is required when an apartment is sold. That certificate describes, for example, the financial situation of the housing company. For existing housing companies, energy certificates can be included in this property managers' certificate. According to the energy certification law, the property manager or the chairperson of the board of the housing company can issue the energy certificate as a part of the property managers' certificate. In this case, the content of energy certificate is limited: it includes energy rating, actual energy consumption figures, calculation details and some more information, but no recommendations for improving the energy efficiency. This is due to the fact that the property managers' certificate itself already includes much information on the building and its future renovation plans.

Separate energy certificate may only be issued by legally empowered persons (qualified experts) with appropriate professional qualifications. When a separate energy certificate is issued, the certifier conducts a simple inspection to determine the energy efficiency of the building (no measurements) and gives
