The energy performance system is based on an asset rating of the energy demand of buildings. The buildings are classified in classes from A (best rating) to I (worst rating) on a primary energy and a heating energy basis. The actual minimal requirement for new buildings is a D classification in the two mentioned classes.

Member States generally differentiate between residential and non-residential building certifiers. The links provided in the Schemes Content section provide information on various training courses across the EU related to non-residential building certifiers. Some Member States require special training before a qualified expert can become accredited, while for others special training is optional. In both cases, there is usually an exam before accreditation is granted.
