This document provides the specific requirements for inspectors and commissioning engineers (as defined in the document), on checking and approving HBES installations in order to ensure its quality and safe operation. The requirements apply to the HBES itself and its relations and interfaces with other systems and functions of buildings both inside and outside. Although this document contains recommendations for testing HBES and their interfaces, it is not intended to cover the mechanical aspects of the installation such as pressure testing pneumatic or hydraulic lines and systems, or checking for compliance with the pressure vessel directive, etc. These aspects are covered in other standards. Likewise, when the HBES interfaces with machinery or boilers, etc., such equipment should be tested in accordance with the relevant standard and manufacturer.s instructions. These requirements are intended to assist in the inspection, testing and commissioning of HBES systems. They are also intended as an aide to integration with the regulations for any other system that the HBES may need to interface with. These requirements are intended for applications in any building, or part of a building, for which the designer considers the HBES suitable. They may also apply to any addition or modification to a HBES within a building, which will affect the overall integrity of the HBES and give guidance that ongoing inspection and maintenance will be necessary to ensure the continued safe and efficient operation of an installed HBES.
