In a preliminary meeting with the DGNB certification body, the project and the applicant's objectives are first presented and the applicability of multiple/serial certification is checked.
The project is registered online by a DGNB auditor.
After the official project application, the applicant concludes a contract for the initial certificate after multiple certification/serial certification with the DGNB, which carries out the conformity check. The contract is based on a scheme as well as a project-specific model building description. If this is changed or updated, the contract must be adapted accordingly.
In cooperation with the auditor, the client defines the sample construction description with variant investigations. This results in the minimum requirements for achieving the desired award or the overall degree of fulfilment.
If necessary, further coordination with the DGNB takes place.
For the initial certificate, the following documents must be submitted to the DGNB certification body in paper form:
Processing time: 6-8 weeks.
Preparation of the DGNB specification sheet as the basis for the corresponding individual certifications of the buildings (the specification sheet defines the still required submission documents in form/type and scope)
After the initial certificate has been awarded, the DGNB prepares a project-specific specification sheet. This forms the basis for providing evidence of the following certification projects and thus defines the submission documents in the form/type and scope of the required documentation.
The client must inform the DGNB immediately of any changes to the model building specifications, the construction work, the planning process and the operating concept.
These changes must also be documented in a supplement to the initial certification agreement and the framework agreement.
Conclusion of a "framework agreement" contract
After the initial certificate, the conditions for the projects to be certified are contractually documented in a framework agreement. For individual certificates, one assignment is sufficient or predefined individual contracts are subsequently concluded.
Afterwards, each individual certificate is registered as usual.
Registration is carried out by the DGNB auditor.
The contract is concluded by the DGNB and the applicant.
The auditor then submits the documents for the conformity check according to the project-specific specification sheet.
Upon successful completion of the test, the project receives its own certificate and plaque.
Processing time: 2 weeks.
