The new 2000 Thermal Regulation promulgated in November 2000 applies to new residential and light industrial buildings. It consists of a decree on the thermal characteristics of construction and an order relating to the thermal characteristics of new buildings and new additions to existing buildings. The clauses of these two new laws apply to all construction projects for which planning permission is to be requested after June 2001. The new rules apply standards that are 20% more stringent than previous ones for the residential sector, and 40% more stringent in the light industry sector. The National Programme for Tackling Climate Change allows for periodically increasing the standards, beginning in 2005.
