Implementation of the EPBD in Hungary: Status and planning – March 2008

Hungary has completed all preparatory action by January 2006 facilitating the prompt implementation of the EPBD in early 2006. Although the advancement seemed to be promising, the Ministerial Decree TNM 7/2006, issued in May 2006, introduced a regulation covering only Articles 3, 4 5 and 6 of the EPBD. The regulation is in force since 01.09. 2006. The issue of the regulation, covering Articles 7-10 is in abeyance, due to changes in the administration, on the one hand, and to the concerns relating the cost of certification, on the other hand.

1 > Legal context

The Ministerial Decree TNM 7/2006 was published in May 2006. It covers the Articles 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the EPBD – the regulation has been in force since 1 September 2006.

The content of the regulation covering Article 7 (Certificates) was also published in January 2006. Nevertheless, the original proposal is under discussion since late 2006 and may be rejected. Originally, an asset method had been chosen, based on the average climatic data and the “standardised” users’ behaviour (the last deduced from statistics of residential, office and school buildings). The proposed asset method is simply the repeat-calculation of the design with input data from buildings (existing or under commissioning). This method was also accepted in January 2006 by the professional society as well as by the State Office of Housing and Building, which is responsible for the implementation of EPBD.

In the summer 2006 the State Office was dissolved, a few of its staff members continued their activity in the Ministry of Local Governments and Regional Development. In the new administrative environment, the publication of the regulation became a subject of concern due the expected reaction of the general public, since the new service is reported to be compulsory and has to be paid for, although it was not requested. New concepts have been put forward by the Ministry: the certification of existing buildings should be based on the energy bills, the cost of certification should not exceed the equivalent of about 50 € in the case of single family houses and individual flats, the advice aiming at energy saving measures should be optional only. There is no information about who is developing or will develop the new protocol – the team which developed the original proposal is not involved. The administration hopes
