Energy expert; application for registration in the list of experts
Private experts who certify compliance with certain requirements of the Building Energy Act (GEG) must be recognised. The recognition of the experts takes place for architects by registration in a list to be kept by the Bavarian Chamber of Architects and for engineers by registration in a list to be kept by the Bavarian Chamber of Civil Engineers.
The Ordinance on the Implementation of Energy Management Regulations (AVEn), the former Competence and Implementation Ordinance EnEV (ZVEnEV), provides for the recognition of private experts who certify compliance with certain requirements of the GEG. For architects, the recognition of experts takes place through registration in a list to be maintained by the Bavarian Chamber of Architects. For engineers, the recognition is effected by registration in a list to be maintained by the Bavarian Chamber of Civil Engineers.
The decision on registration is made by a registration committee set up at the respective chambers. The decision of this committee is an administrative act subject to a fee.
In view of the importance of the activity to be carried out, the experts must have sufficient qualifications, which are checked and determined by the registration committee.
