Clean hot-water boilers for Belgium
The Belgian Official Journal of 30 January 2004 has published the Royal Decree of 8 January 2004 regulating the levels of nitrous oxide (NOX) and carbon mono-oxide (CO) emissions for central-heating boilers and burners fed with liquid or gaseous fuel with a rated output of no more than 400 kW.
The decree specifies the maximum level of emissions for different types of equipment and fuels. Before putting a new equipment on the market, the manufacturer or its representative in the European Union submits that equipment to a type-evaluation by a recognised body and establishes a declaration of conformity (in Dutch, French and German) to the maximum emission levels specified for its equipment. The production is followed-up by a recognised body either by unannounced inspection visits or by monitoring of its quality system (ISO 9001).
The decree will be applicable on 31 January 2005.
