Regulations concerning oil-fired combustion installations have been in place since 1987, and were most recently updated in 1997. These do not only apply to heating and sanitary hot water installations, but includes those forming part of a production process. The regulations apply to installations with a capacity of less than 3 MW. New installations as well as significant replacement of existing installation components must be inspected by a certified inspector. Among the elements to be inspected are combustion efficiency standards. Installations in service prior to 1 January 1982 must be at least 85% efficient, while those in service after 1 January 1982 must have a combustion efficiency of 90%. Installation owners must request an inspection of their installation every two years.
