Create an EPD

Creating an Environmental Product Declaration in the Australasian EPD Programme includes the following steps:

1. Find a relevant PCR for the product
2. Perform LCA study based on the PCR
3. Compile EPD Report
4. Verification and Certification
5. Registration and Publication

An EPD is normally valid for three or five years after which the declaration must necessarily be revised and reissued. Regardless of the validity, a published EPD must be updated if one of the environmental indicators has worsened by more than 10% compared with the published data.

Detailed information about how to create an EPD is defined in the General Programme Instructions.

If you are considering creating an EPD we recommend that you contact us as early as possible in the process to enable us to provide guidance and information.
