6.11 Efficiency
Replace Table 4 with the following Table:
Table 4 - Efficiency
Efficiency Minimum net Minimum net
Class a a
Efficiency for appliances of Efficiency for appliances of
heat input greater than 5 kW heat input less than or equal to
5 kW

The efficiency value  based on gross calorific value is related to the net value for the five reference

gases as follows:
G 110 net value = 0,880 x gross value
G 120 net value = 0,882 x gross value
G 20 net value = 0,900 x gross value
G 25 net value = 0,901 x gross value
G 30 net value = 0,923 x gross value

The heat input based on gross calorific value is related to the net value for the five reference gases

as follows:
