Abstract: The object of the research project "Environmental assessment and environmental defclarations of Building Services systems and products was to create a framework for environmental assessment of Building Services systems and products. The environmental impact of Building Services systems and products was dealt with as potential impact applying LCA method according to the standard ISO 14040. The environmental impact of Building
Services systems and products depends on the environmental burdens from the production
processes. In addition, the environmental impact depends on the influence of these installations and systems on the environmental burdens of buildings. When assessing the Iife-cycle impact of Building Services, the reference basis has to be the standard of service which is required in a certain building. Defining the criteria for equivalent functional systems was one of the focuses of the research project.
