TM44 Compliance

What is a TM44 air conditioning system inspection?

TM44 is the UK's standard for determining the effectiveness and efficiency of air conditioning units. The guidance is primarily intended to support inspections that are carried out for compliance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) but is also useful to anyone who wishes to assess the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system. 

If you control an air conditioning system that is covered by the legislation then you are responsible for ensuring an inspection has been completed and you have a copy of the inspection report. TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections are mandatory for all buildings with a cooling capacity of 12kW and above, with Inspection Reports to be updated every 5 years.
