Product testing and compliance edited - MCE 2014

  1. 1. Product Testing and Compliance for International Markets By Tom Garrigan Senior Test Engineer
  2. 2. 2 Independent Accredited Testing 2 BSRIA Test • ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory ( UKAS No.1053). • Listed on NANDO as a Notified Body (NB 0480). • Product validation and verification for: • CE marking • Thermal performance • Efficiency • Smoke emissions • Acoustics • Corrosion • EN and International standards. • Product development and bespoke testing. • On-site and witness testing.
  3. 3. 3 Independent Accredited Testing 3 Testing of …
  4. 4. 4 Independent Accredited Testing 4 Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) • Managed by Gemserv and supported by DECC. • Maximum capacity of heat pumps is 45kW. • Assesses products, manufacturing processes and Installers. • Testing in accordance with BS EN14511:2011 Parts 1-4. • EN 16147:2011 testing for DHW heat pumps to be introduced. • Linked to RHPP/ domestic RHI.
  5. 5. 5 Independent Accredited Testing 5 Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) changes Outdoor heat exchanger Indoor heat exchanger Minimum COP Air inlet dry bulb (°C) Air inlet wet bulb (°C) Water inlet (°C) Water outlet (°C) - 7 6 30 35 3.8 2 1 a 35 3.1 a The test is performed at the water flow rate obtained during the test at the corresponding standard rating conditions. • Two thermal performance test points for air to water heat pumps. • One thermal performance test point for water/brine to water heat pumps. • Minimum COP efficiency requirements.
  6. 6. 6 Independent Accredited Testing • Phase 1 - Non-domestic RHI since November 2011. • Phase 2 - Domestic RHI to start in Spring 2014. • Domestic RHI tariff: • ASHP – 7.3pence/kWh for heat generated • GSHP - 18.8pence/kWh for heat generated • RHPP to continue until 31 March 2014. • Eligibility criteria: • Energy Performance Certificate required • Green Deal Assessment • MCS register number – product/installation • All installations must be meter ready. 6 Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
  7. 7. 7 Independent Accredited Testing 7 Energy Technology List • Managed by Carbon Trust on behalf of DECC. • ECA claim available to all businesses that pay UK corporation or income tax. • Testing in accordance with: • BS EN14511– Space heating • BS EN16147 – Domestic hot water heat pumps • Minimum efficiency requirements. • Selected products on ETL audited annually. • Declared values must be within 95% of independently tested values.
  8. 8. 8 Independent Accredited Testing 8 European Labels • European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) Quality Label (QL). • 12 participating countries. • Testing in accordance with: • EN 14511:2011 – Space heating • EN 16147:2011 – Domestic hot water heat pumps • EN 12102:2008 – Acoustic testing • Multiple thermal test points. • Minimum efficiency requirement at one test point. • Testing regulations for seasonal efficiencies being developed.
  9. 9. 9 Independent Accredited Testing 9 Heat Pump Energy Labelling • Mandatory from 26 September 2015 . • Heating and combi-systems ≤70kW -Lot 1 (EU) No 811/2013. • Water heaters ≤70kW and ≤500L storage volume -Lot 2 (EU) No 812/2013. • Labels to include: • Appliance details • Energy class • Consumption, efficiency, capacity etc • Noise • Is the industry going to be ready for the labelling regulations?
  10. 10. 10 Independent Accredited Testing CPR replaces CPD • Construction Products Regulations (CPR) 305/2011/EU replaces Construction Products Directive (CPD) 09/106/EEC. • CE marking voluntary in UK under CPD until 01 July 2013. • BSRIA saw 100% increase in radiator test work over last 12 months, similar volume in 2005 on introduction of CPD. 10
