When should I get a Brussels Capital Region tertiary EPC / EPB certificate?

peb tertiary EPB EPC certificate You have an obligation since 1st May 2011 to establish a tertiary EPB certificate, if you sell or rent the premises assigned to the function of offices and services and which have a surface greater than or equal to 500 m² on the Brussels Capital Region.

You will need to reference the information contained on this certificate: Energy class and annual CO2 emissions, on advertisement of your property. You also must supply a copy of this certificate to any potential buyer. The original of this certificate must be issued to the final purchaser of your property. In the case of a lease, you must specify the energy class and CO2 emissions in an article of the lease contract, or you must attach a copy of the EPB certificate with the lease contract (the owner keeps the original).

If you need to certify a house or an apartment, you will find more information on the residential EPB certificate page.


What is the price of an tertiary EPC / EPB certificate?

For a price quote, please contact us by email or by telephone on 0486 68 56 77.


What happens at an appointment with an EPB Certifier?

The appointment can be made by phone or email. If you are an owner who is renting, we can make the appointment directly with your tenant. We are punctual, the appointment is based on a specific time and not on a time slot.

During the visit the entire premises (offices, common areas, boiler room, etc.) must be accessible.


What do we check during our visit:

- The volume of the building and any annexes.
- The surfaces of all surfaces in contact with the exterior (walls of facades, roofs, grounds, floors, windows, doors).
- The characteristics of insulating materials used in these walls (insulation types, thickness, etc.).
- The technical characteristics of the heating system (boilers, piping, etc.).
- The technical characteristics of solar panels, heat pumps and other systems of energy production.
- The technical characteristics of the ventilation and air conditioning.
- The technical characteristics of the lighting system.


What you can prepare for our visit:

The property’s plan (If you have one)

In order to improve the accuracy of our expertise, you can provide us (if you have) one or more of the following documents:

- The blue print of the lighting system.
- A certificate of receipt of the installation.
- A diagnostic report of the heating system installation.
- A periodic inspection certificate.
- An EPB declaration.
- Previous energy performance certificate.
- Specifications (cahier des charges).
- A successful application of a premium of the Brussels Region.
- The original invoices for contractors. Especially regarding: insulation (wall, roof, floor),
    windows, heating system, or the ventilation system.
- The original invoices for purchase of materials (if you have performed the work without a contractor).
- Technical documentation.
- Dated details of execution.
- A finding of site reports.
- photo timeline (allowing for findings of the walls insulation).

These documents are not required for issuance of the certificate but may result in a better energy evaluation.


What is the validity duration of an EPB certificate?

The EPB Certificate is valid for 10 years unless you make renovations and you decide to sell or rent your property. In this case, you need to apply for a new certification that will take into account improvements that you have made.


Does the EPB certificate for sale or lease of property is the same?

Yes, it is the same certificate that can be used to sell or to rent a property.


If I do not want to rent or sell my office, do I still need an EPB Certificate?

No, in this case it is unnecessary to ask for an EPB certificate.

Similarly, if you already have an EPB certificate following the acquisition of a property, you do not need to renew the EPB certificate (after expiration) until you want to rent or resell.


What is the purpose of Energy Performance of Buildings Certificate?

The EPB certificate brings more transparency in real estate transactions. It provides better information for prospective buyers or tenants on the energy performance of property and enables them to compare different properties objectively.

The certificate also includes a series of recommendations which aim to generate energy savings. It is a positive side for the environment (effort against climate change) and for your budget.
