The European Professional Card (EPC), or European Professional Card (EPC) is an electronic document thanks to which certain professional qualifications are recognized at European level. It is not a physical card, but an agile procedure to be able to practice certain professions in the countries of the European Union. Last June 9, our government approved the Royal Decree¹ that regulates its operation.
This card accredits that the professional can practice his profession in the country where he wants to work, since he has passed the administrative controls and his professional qualification is recognized in that country. In the case of a physiotherapist, with the communication received by the German administration, for example, he will be accredited to work in Germany.
What is the expiration date of an energy certificate?
Validity and updating of the energy certificate
The energy performance certificate for buildings is valid for ten years.
How to renew energy certificate?
For the renewal of the energy certificate, the owner must contact a competent technician to make the document again or at least update the existing one. Failure to do so would be in breach of the obligation to renew or update the energy certificate.

European Professional Card
This Convention creates the European Patent Organization, which is the result of the collective political will of the European countries to establish a uniform patent system in Europe.
The protection conferred by the European patent can be extended to two States which, although they are not Members of the Convention, have concluded extension agreements with the European Patent Organization. They are the following: Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
As a result, it can generally be said that obtaining a patent with effects in different European States is easier and cheaper than obtaining protection through individual filing in the same States.
A European patent application may also be filed by several applicants jointly or by several applicants designating different Contracting States. In such cases, the text must be identical for all the States, Article 59.
Where the same invention has been made by several persons independently, the right to the European patent shall belong to the one whose application has the earliest filing date, provided that this application has been published.
How much does an energy efficiency certificate cost?
It is estimated that, on average, the price of the energy efficiency certificate has a cost of 1.50 €/m2. Therefore, in a 50-100 m2 house, the cost of the energy certificate can be around 60-130 €.
Where can I request an energy certificate for a home?
Through the internet, in a physical establishment or through the lists provided by professional associations. When requesting the energy efficiency certificate you should contact an authorized technician.
When is the energy efficiency certificate mandatory?

If it is an industrial building that is going to be used for workshops or for the activity that will be developed in it.

This article is part of our “From the Trenches” collection. It describes some common challenges you may face when scheduling projects. It describes the best approach when trying to determine how long tasks should be and how many tasks there should be to optimize a project schedule. It explains how different industries often require different types of schedules (e.g., software development, EPM (engineering, procurement, and construction), and plant shutdown). It also discusses various factors in choosing a project resolution (e.g., project duration, resources involved, management or division of resources, speed and effort required to collect data, and data update schedule).
There are many materials available on how to do a schedule, but one of the most critical lessons is very difficult to obtain: how many tasks should you have in the project schedule and how long should each task take?
