Energy performance certificates revisited: toothless tiger learns to bite

The Act on the Presentation of Energy Performance Certificates 2012 implements the EU Energy Performance Directive, which replaced EU Directive 2002/91/EC. The act introduces disclosure requirements for advertisements in commercial media, more stringent sellers´ and landlords´ obligations in relation to energy performance certificates and an effective regime of administrative penalties.
