Mutual recognitions with established programme operators

Companies in any country may develop and register EPDs in the International EPD® System based on international standards. These should be recognized to be used for a wide range of applications that rely on the standards.

To broaden the findability (and possibly also recognition) of EPDs in certain markets, a voluntary dual registration of EPDs has been made possible with some other programme operators that act in accordance ISO 14025.

OrganisationPurposeWebsite
AENOR GlobalEPD (Spain)

Mutual recognition of environmental product declarations of all product categories.

 

As a voluntary option, EPDs registered in the EPD programme of AENOR (GlobalEPD) may bear the logotype of the International EPD® System and vice versa if an additional fee is paid. Dually-registered EPDs are published both at www.environdec.com at the corresponding AENOR web page.

Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU; Germany)

Mutual recognition of English or German-language environmental product declarations for construction products compliant with EN 15804.

 

As a voluntary option, EPDs registered in the IBU programme may bear the logotype of the International EPD® System and vice versa if an additional fee is paid. Dually-registered EPDs are published both at www.environdec.com at the corresponding IBU web page.

 

The similarities and differences between the two systems have been assessed in detail to ensure that the information produced is compatible as far as possible.

 

Please note that:

 

  • Incorporation of the dually-registered EPD into national databases, such as the Ökobau.dat in Germany may have additional requirements on the EPD.
  • The dual registration does not entitle the declaration owner to use the logo/s of IBU beyond the EPD without the consent of the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU)
