Legal framework

This thermal regulation was passed on 12 July 2010. It was the subject of several appeals.
A judgment dated 7 November 2012 of the French Conseil d'Etat confirmed the legality of the decree installing the RT 2012, but an appeal (issued by representatives of the electric heating industry and household equipment) led the Conseil d'Etat (April 24, 2013) to cancel the order specifying the calculation method (for a procedural defect: it lacked the signature of the Minister of Industry who was also in charge of energy matters). The device is nevertheless valid.
