All air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kw must be regularly inspected by an energy assessor. The inspections must be no more than five years apart. The regulations require the first inspection of the affected air conditioning systems to be carried out as follows:

  • for all systems first put into service on or after 1 January 2008, the first inspection must have taken place within five years of the date when the system was first put into service
  • for other air conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 250kW the first inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2009
  • for other air conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than
    12kW the first inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2011

Only air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW are affected by these regulations. This will include systems consisting of individual units which are less than 12kW but whose combined effective rated output is more than 12kW.

The effective rated output is the maximum calorific output in kW stated by the manufacturer of the system as deliverable during continuous operation while complying with the useful efficiency indicated by the manufacturer.

One or more air conditioning units within a building controlled by a single person are considered to comprise a single air conditioning system for the purposes of the regulations.

The person who controls the operation of an air conditioning system must:

  • ensure an inspection has been done in accordance with the requirements and
    timetable of the regulations
  • keep the most recent inspection report provided by an energy assessor
  • give any inspection report to any person taking over responsibilities with respect to
    the control of the air conditioning system

If the control of an air conditioning system is passed to another person and that person has not been given an inspection report by the previous operator of the system, the system must be inspected within three months of the new operator of the system taking over such control.
