During the 2016 Eurovent Annual Meeting in Verona, the Eurovent Commission, the committee of national member associations, has finalised their first European-wide Statement of Principles on an industry that thinks ‘Beyond HVACR’. The document acts as a basis for decisions taken by the Eurovent association and is recognised by its member associations on a national level. It incorporates wider industry perspectives, statements on key policy issues, and visions that help to ensure a true level-playing field.
Since their meeting in Prague in October 2015, Eurovent member associations from the European Union, Russia, and Turkey have been working together on developing guiding principles. The 34-page document includes agreed key statements on a wide range of topics including: the technological scope of the European industry, the core issues it is facing (such as Indoor Air Quality, digitisation, food safety, and energy efficiency), major policy areas (such as Ecodesign, Energy Labelling, and F-Gases), as well as internationalisation aspects (such as a jointly agreed support on advancing and promoting EN and ISO standards).
‘The publication of the Eurovent Statement of Principles constitutes yet another milestone in the further development of our association and in bringing the European industry and their leading sector associations closer together.’ Says Eurovent President Alex Rasmussen. ‘The document brings together all the different technologies of our industry, focussing on unification and not separation. It follows our key principle of thinking Beyond HVACR by incorporating visions on future issues and our European industry values in general.’
The Eurovent Statement of Principles is now available for download at the homepage of Eurovent and distributed by national member associations. It is being regularly reviewed by the Eurovent Commission and, whenever necessary, updated in order to reflect the state of the art, technology and science. With this document, Eurovent members also reinforce their strong cooperation with REHVA, which is highlighted in a particular chapter that was presented to REHVA President Prof. Stefano Corgnati during the Annual Meeting.
