Preparing for TM44

Being prepared for your TM44 Inspection is important for owners and managers of industrial, public, or commercial buildings so they know what to expect and what needs to be done in advance of the inspection. New legislation means if you have air conditioning systems in your premises, then compliance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations is the law. Your air conditioning system needs to be assessed in accordance with the guidance document TM44. You must use an accredited assessor for your air conditioning system inspection who will provide you with a report of the survey and inspection, which will be conducted in accordance with the TM44 regulations.

TM44 is the official standard for air conditioning inspections, giving assessors a set of procedures to enable them to give guidance to building owners and managers on the management, maintenance, and efficiency of their air conditioning systems, which assists them in becoming aware of their carbon footprint and the measures to reduce it. Building owners and managers should familiarise themselves with the various sections of the TM44 document, especially the explanatory and introductory sections. This document can be purchased from the CIBSE website.

By preparing ahead of time, system inspection costs can be minimised as the more information you can provide to the assessor, the time taken for the inspection may be less, which may be less costly.

There are deadlines for the air conditioning system inspections with the final deadline already passed in early 2011. If you have not had your inspection, yet it is advisable to have it done as soon as possible to avoid paying a fine. If you have missed this deadline, we would advise you to contact us as soon as possible before you have a local authority compliance check who will be looking if you are in compliance with the laws of the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations.
