Update to the General Programme Instructions (GPIs) - The Australasian EPD Programme Ltd has just issued a new document, the Instructions of the Australasian EPD Programme – a Regional Annex to the General Programme Instructions. (2017) Version 2.0 Published 1.05.2017. This document supersedes the previous General Programme Instructions of the Australasian EPD Programme (2015 Version 1.0, dated 2015-20-02), and the key difference is that this new document now operates as an annex to the General Programme Instructions for the International EPD® System with specific considerations for EPDs registered in Australasia. 

General Programme Instructions (GPIs) are the rules guiding the overall administration and operation of the Australasian EPD Programme in accordance with ISO 14025. The GPIs include the Life Cycle Assessment methodology required for an EPD, as well as giving guidance on verification, creating Product Category Rules, and communicating EPDs.
