It is essential for the market acceptance of EPDs that the LCA results and other published environmental information are considered reliable and trustworthy. The data underlying an EPD, the specific LCA model, and the whole EPD is therefore subject to an independent verification prior to submitting an EPD for official registration with the Australasian EPD Programme.
Each EPD verification is conducted according to the relevant Product Category Rules and General Programme Instructions of the Australasian EPD Programme.
Only approved individual verifiers or accredited certification bodies may carry out EPD verification.
The current list of approved verifiers is available here.
The Australasian EDP ® Programme accepts applications from suitably experienced individuals wishing to act as external independent verifiers in the Australasian region.
Individual verifiers are required to demonstrate expertise and meet competence
requirements in Life cycle methodologies and critical review of LCA studies, as
defined in the General Programme Instructions of the Australasian EPD Programme.
Individuals wishing to apply to be verifiers should contact the Secretariat for a copy of the current application form.
Accredited certification bodies wishing to act as verifiers are requested to refer to the General Programme Instructions of the Australasian EPD Programme and contact the Secretariat of the Australasian EPD Programme.
