The International EPD® System

The International EPD® System is a worldwide programme operating in accordance with ISO 14025 for type III environmental declarations. They operate a system to verify and register EPD®s and maintain a publicly-available library of EPD®s and PCRs. Over 800 EPDs for a wide range of product categories are currently registered by companies in 39 countries. The rules guiding the overall administration and operation of the International EPD® System are the General Programme Instructions.

The Secretariat is in Sweden, with a Helpdesk in China. International EPD have partnered with local organisations to market and register EPDs in selected markets: Australia & New Zealand (Australasian EPD), Brazil (EPD Brasil), Chile & Mexico (EPD Latin America), India and Turkey (EPD Turkey). All EPDs registered with regional partners are also registered with the International EPD® System.

For building and construction products, the International EPD® System and all regional partners additionally aligns with the European standard EN 15804 and are a founding member of the European ECO Platform.

Registration of EPDs with the International EPD® System is open for companies and organisations in any country. The International EPD® System also collaborates with other EPD programme operators acting according to ISO 14025 by mutual recognition of EPDs registered with other programmes and PCR harmonisation.

More information about the International EPD® System and EPDs registered is available on their website here.
