Ukraine Building Codes

Current Codes

Thermal Protection of Buildings (DBN B.2.6-31:2006) Effective January 2007
This code is mandatory nationwide and sets requirements for building components including thermal insulation. The code was developed by Yurij Matrosov, who helped develop the Russian Thermal Performance of Building Codes, SNiP 23-02-2003. Ukraine also received assistance from NIISF, IMT, and the US EPA, and integrated many of their suggestions into the code. Ukraine’s code includes a performance-based compliance system as well as an “energy passport” for documentation and compliance verification. Changes to this code approved in 2012 significantly improved minimum requirements for heat transfer resistance.
