Screening of national building regulations

Under the Lead Market Initiative, PRC Bouwcentrum International and Delft University of Technology have conducted a screening of national building regulations across EU countries in matters of sustainable construction. The study investigates whether and how national codes regulate sustainable construction and how this is enforced. The researchers have also assessed the coherence and effectiveness of the regulations, and if private and public/private initiatives are complementing the mandatory codes. The main publications and the country-based reports are available at this link.
