In compliance with R.D. 235/2013, starting June 1st 2013 it will be mandatory to provide buildings (or part of them) owners or landlords with an energy efficiency certificate, for rents longer than four months. The owner of the house, building or establishment, will be in charge of obtaining and paying such certificate to be allowed to sell or rent the house.

Buildings subjected to this energy efficiency regulation are:

  • New constructed buildings
  • Buildings or parts of existing ones to be sold or rent to a new landlord
  • Buildings or parts of building where a public body occupies a total surface higher than 250 m2 and with usual traffic of the population

Regarding these issues, Balearic Islands’ Confederación de Asociaciones Empresariales (CAEB) organized a technical seminar with participation from SGS’ Edification Technical Management member, Miguel Ángel Sánchez, Ángel Gallego on behalf of Conselleria de Industria and also Mavia Isern as CAEB’s representative.

During a first step, SGS explained all particularities of the new R.D. 235/2013 and its evolution since the EU first directives. Conselleria de Industria representative showed the bureaucratic procedures to implement these certifications and their role as supervisor for all parts involved.

The seminar was attended by 70 representatives from CAEB’s associations, promoting an intense debate with the speakers to clarify their doubts on the certification process and the regulation scope.
