Film – Explaining the EPD:
What is an EPD?
In an easily understandable and descriptive way, this video shows the purpose and use that EPDs have for building products, the differences between EPDs and other environmental labels, and how an EPD is created.
ÖKOBAUDAT / Bilingual Datasets
The new feature for biligual EPDs, those available in German and English, is presented as a major innovation. At the beginning of the year 2017, the third update of ÖKOBAUDAT will also take place. EPD data which have not yet been transferred (or only the German EPD has been transferred) and should be found in the new version of the ÖKOBAUDAT must be processed by the EPD-Online-Tool of IBU by the 10.01.2017. These EPD can then be transferred via the IBU interface and then published in ÖKOBAUDAT.
