Change in the Building Decree
What has changed?
Do you own one or more office buildings? All office buildings must have energy label C or better. This means an energy index of 1,3 or more if you have an older, still valid, label. If you do not agree with your energy index, you can file a complaint.
An energy label indicates how energy efficient a building is. The obligation to have at least an energy label C applies to all offices measuring 100 m2 or more. All offices should carry an energy label, those that are part of a building as well as free-standing offices.
- owners of office buildings
- entrepreneurs who use office buildings
This regulation is a change to the Building Decree 2012 (Bouwbesluit 2012). It has come into force on 1 January 2023.
