Building airtightness tests have become very common in many countries, either to comply with minimum requirements of regulations or programmes, or to justify input values in calculation methods. Thus, it has become very important to understand and quantify the reliability of these tests. According to the present ISO 9972 standard, the zero-flow pressure shall not exceed 5 Pa for the test to be valid.
