Construction and Technical Standards
Buildings are subject to a long list of technical standards and obligations. Some of them are the result of EU regulation and norms. Next to the requirements linked to energy efficiency and environmental standards, UIPI also works on regulation linked to:
- Lift standards
- Health and safety standards in buildings
- High speed communication networks and broadband infrastructure.
Our members are some of the major clients of the construction and renovation industry. Topics of relevance for the construction sector are often important for us. Hence, UIPI participates in debates and discussions about policy developments in this sector.
UIPI participates in the debate on Competitiveness of the construction industry at EU level (Construction 2020).
Climate, Environment and Energy
Climate, environmental and energy policies have become the top priorities at EU level. Buildings are subject to specific interest to foster energy efficiency, the reduction of CO2 emission and environmental footprint. UIPI is representing the interests of its members in this debate.
