Heating Appliance Ordinance 1989
The Heating Appliance Ordinance ("Verordnung über energiesparende Anforderungen an heizungstechnische Anlagen und Brauchwasseranlagen (Heizungsanlagen-Verordnung - HeizAnlV)") posed requirements to the equipment and dimensioning of central heating systems using water as the energy carrier as well as on hot water systems. Specific requirements additionally applied to single heaters.
The ordinance was issued fort he first time on 22 September 1978, came into effect on 1 October 1978 and was amended for the first time on 1 June 1982. Additional amendments followed in 1989, 1994, and 1998.
The amendment of the Heating Appliance Ordinance 1989 is an element of the "Verordnung zur Änderung energiesparrechtlicher Vorschriften" of 19 January 1989. This amended ordinance abolished inter alia the Heating Plant Operation Ordinance. Regulations that were still valid are to be found in the Heating Appliance Ordinance 1989 (§ 9). Additionally limit values of exhaust gas losses (§ 3 Heating Appliance Ordinance 1982) were henceforth to be subject of the emission control law (1. BlmSchV) and omitted from the Heating Appliance Ordinance.
For the acceding territory, appendix 1 of the Unification Treaty contains special regulations concerning the Heating Appliance Ordinance which became obsolete with the coming into effect of the Heating Appliance Ordinance 1994 from 1 June 1994.
