CESBA offers harmonization among building regulations at EU and national levels leading to considerable simplification within administration procedures and creating a common understanding among the actors. Therefore, CESBA provides harmonized indicators.

Harmonization does not mean that all regions have to use the sameassessment tool. Because of cultural and historical reasons, because of climatic reasons, because of various regional economic backgrounds, etc. an unique European assessment tool will not be efficient.

Each region needs to encourage its own criteria through an assessment tool.

Regional harmonization is necessary because it will help building owners,architects, administrative bodies, construction companies and others to use assessment tools and follow certain quality procedures. CESBA offerstrans national support in order to make the built environment more sustainable.
