Update to the General Programme Instructions (GPIs)

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. (2018) Version 3.0 Published 9.18.2018. 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.
