The report sets out the approach for the PEP Partners to the certification of products and technologies used in Passive House designs.
The report reviews the benefits of certification of the products, materials and technologies used in Passive House designs and identifies windows and glazed facades, exterior doors and heat recovery ventilation units as those for which certification is considered most practical and beneficial.
Certification criteria for these products are then proposed along with the appropriate standards and test methods.
