In this study, it is aimed to introduce a new certification system which certificates and investigates that the building is stable, peaceful, comfortable, harmonious, healthy, and compatible or not with the user identity and intended purpose. The proposed new system is the name of the Bioharmological Conformity Assessment. Its short name is BCA. The proposed system has been applied in a regional boarding school in Elazig-Turkey. At the end of the study very interesting results were obtained. In study, a regional boarding school building in Elazig was examined in the scope of BCA according to 14 basic criteria of Planning, Project Design and Application (PPA). BCA Certificate Class of the examined building was determined as “Should be Improved (A)” and deficiency-inadequacy level was determined as 52%. Mechanical system (84%), practice according to the technique (83%), Lighting (67%), building installations (65%), furnishing and configuration (58%) and selection of appropriate materials (56%) were determined as the highest and most significant deficiency-inadequacy criteria among the 14 criteria of the middle school in question. Therefore, it was concluded that the current physical characteristics of the school building in question is not appropriate for user identity and intended purpose, would have negative effect on education and training as well as negative effects on the biological, physiological and psychological development of the students.
