Air Infiltration & Ventilation Association of Australia

The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Association of Australia (AIVAA) is actively involved in campaigning for improvements to Australia’s National Construction Code and Australian standards.

Current efforts revolve around a push to include some elements of testing and inspection of building and ductwork air tightness in the construction process. Your help in this effort is needed, so please find links and information here about how you can help.

The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Association of Australia Inc. (“AIVAA”) has been established by a group of people concerned that the current energy rating systems used for buildings need to be further improved. Specifically, that:

  • Air infiltration, a major source of energy wastage; and
  • Ventilation, a potential source of health issues if not managed correctly,

are not being adequately tested and the results taken into account for a building’s rating and performance.

As such, the founding members of AIVAA have determined that the “Statement of Purpose” for this association is:

    • To lobby governments and regulatory authorities for scientifically‐based government policy, standards, grants and incentives.
    • To lobby other industry groups
    • To promote the use of performance‐based criteria & measurement in the calculations of energy efficiency rating schemes and other regulatory building requirements.
    • To introduce scientifically‐based “accredited” training, certification and registration of air infiltration and ventilation professionals.
    • To establish acceptable standards for calibration and registration of test equipment.
    • To establish documented procedures covering appropriate conduct for testing and retrofitting of buildings.
