Standardization in the field of basic performance standards on building construction including general rules for performance requirements for buildings as a whole and for subsystems, e.g., building elements, focusing on performance description and requirements, user requirements, and the means to evaluate housing and other types of building solutions.

A special emphasis is placed on developing housing performance descriptions on aspects (e.g., for trading of houses as a whole), such as:

  • Structural integrity, durability and serviceability
  • Fire safety
  • Operating energy
  • Accessibility and usability

Topics covered in more specific detail by other SCs within TC 59 and other technical committees are excluded. Determination of performance level values required for specific purposes is excluded as it will be decided by the stakeholders.
