As the EPBD related regulations can not cover all possible kind of new technologies, Member States have to develop “principle of equivalence” procedures, in order to allow the assessment of the systems not covered by the standard calculation procedures. This paper will first discuss the overall context, followed by a description of the approach used in several countries. Then, a brief summary of related international projects is given. Finally, there is a more in depth presentation of the approach proposed in Belgium.
