General Programme Instructions

The General Programme Instructions (GPIs) are published by the International EPD® System and provide the rules guiding the overall administration and operation of an EPD Programme in accordance with ISO 14025.

The Australasian EPD Programme follows the International GPIs, which include the Life Cycle Assessment methodology requirements, and guidance on verification, Product Category Rules and the communication of EPDs.

An Australasian Regional Annex to the GPIs sets out specific EPD requirements, content declarations and LCA methodology rules that apply to EPDs published by the Australasia EPD Programme. These regional requirements are exceptions to instructions specified in the GPIs.
