In the field of energy performance, successive regulations pushed a "performance-based" approach, based at least on an energy consumption requirement at the design stage for heating and/or cooling systems (Spekkink 2005). Nevertheless, in the field of building ventilation, regulations throughout the world are mainly still based on “prescriptive” approaches, using airflows or air change rates requirements.  

This paper introduces the evolution of the French context towards performance-based approaches in the frame of the national building code revision, and on-going work at the European level with the revision of EN 15665 and TR 14788.
