(Berlin) – In September 2022, the BTGA – Federal Industry Association for Technical Building Equipment eV published the rule BTGA 4.001 “Structured commissioning (IBS) of HVAC systems”. Commissioning follows the construction of a system and serves to create an operational state: A ventilation system that includes the components is turned on for the first time for the purpose of testing, adjustment and parameters of the automation systems.
This completes the construction and ensures that planning specifications are met. The BTGA 4.001 rule is intended to support installers of ventilation and air conditioning systems and is available at a price of EUR 35.20 (incl. VAT, plus shipping costs) from Beuth Verlag at www.beuth.de or through the BTGA shop: www. btga.de > Publications > BTGA Webshop.
Procedures and services for a structured commissioning of typical ventilation and air conditioning systems for non-residential buildings are described in BTGA rule 4.001 “Structured commissioning (IBS) of HVAC systems”. HVAC systems in special buildings, such as data centers or clean rooms, were not taken into account. As a rule, these systems must go through very specific processes before they can begin to operate as intended.
In its rules, the BTGA provides important recommendations and information on the handling of technical standards, guidelines and other legal regulations in the field of technical building equipment. The BTGA rules provide useful suggestions for routine work processes in TGA companies and close the gaps between the many legal regulations and standards that must be observed in the field of technical construction equipment.
