Energy efficiency of buildings and processes
As of 6 April 2018, organisations performing planning, renovation, capital refurbishment and operation of heated buildings and structures have to comply with the adopted energy efficiency requirements. The requirements apply to buildings and structures that are heated and equipped with heat-consuming installations, electric receivers, water-separating devices or devices operating on natural gas, with the aim of providing consumers with energy resources and utilities.
As of 20 September 2017, organisations developing construction project documentation for a building or a structure (project owners, main contractors or third parties developing project documentation pursuant to a contract) are required to include additional energy efficiency information into project documentation bundle.
Federal Labour and Occupation Service (RosTrud) has published a clarification on the necessity of organizing a preliminary and subsequent regular medical examinations for employees.
Medical examinations are regulated by Order No. 302n that also lists types of working conditions and occupational exposure that are considered as harmful or hazardous.
Organisations that perform planning, expert assessment, construction, putting into operation and operation of heated buildings and structures (both newly built or renovated) may have to comply with a new set of requirements regulating energy efficiency of such buildings and structures.
The following parameters are to be used in order to determine compliance with energy efficiency requirements:
