Registration & publication

Registration & publication

The information below to companies in all countries, except in those countries where EPD registration is handled via a regional partner. These countries are currently: Australia, Brazil, Chile, India, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia and Turkey.

After completed verification, the organisation developing the EPD shall submit the EPD to the Secretariat (registration@environdec.com) together with other mandatory documentation:

  • EPD registration form (template is available on this page);
  • EPD - final version after verification. The EPD may be provided in one or multiple languages, and in multiple versions formatted for desktop computers or mobile use. If the EPD is not available in English, it shall contain an executive summary in English that includes the main content of the EPD;
  • Verification report in English as provided by the verifier, and/or certificate of EPD Process Certification;

The following information shall be submitted for the listing at www.environdec.com:

  • Product description in English;
  • Picture of the declared product or service;
  • List of products included in the EPD (if relevant);
  • Company logotype (only needed in the case of first EPD registration).

Please note that due to technical reasons, the maximum size of a single e-mail is 15 MB.

There is a fee structure associated with the registration and publication of EPDs in the International EPD® System, which is the main source of funding for the operation of the programme.

 

Upon receiving complete and correct documentation, the Secretariat will issue a registration number and publish the EPD at www.environdec.com, supplemented with information about the organisation, contact details, etc. The programme operator may also publish the EPD in alternative formats or managed databases to enable further use of EPD information.

Upon publication of the EPD, it will be valid to be used by the organisation until it has expired or is de-registered. During this time, the organisation may also use the International EPD® System logotype.

Additional options during EPD registration

There are currently a few voluntary options during EPD registration. These options may be subject to additional fees.

Certificate

An EPD owner may request an electronic certificate to demonstrate that the EPD is registered and published within the International EPD® System. The certificate is issued by the Secretariat upon request and after outstanding fees have been paid.

Single issue EPD (e.g. climate declaration)

Choosing this option means that the Secretariat prepares one single-page Climate Declaration based on the EPD. A Climate Declaration is intended to be used as complements to the EPD and will refer to the EPD for information about other environmental impacts. The Climate Declaration is published alongside the EPD at www.environdec.com

Machine-readable EPD

Choosing this option means that the Secretariat prepares a machine-readable EPD file based on the EPD. The machine-readable EPD is published alongside the EPD at https://data.environdec.com. The company may also provide a ready xml-file during registration to be published in the database.

Use of the ECO Platform EPD logotype

This option is only applicable to EN 15804-compliant EPDs for construction products. More information is available here.

Dual registration into other programmes

As part of its efforts for international harmonization of EPD information, the International EPD® System has made mutual recognition agreements with established EPD programmes. More information about dual registration into these programmes can be found here.
