Parallel to its efforts of harmonizing EPDs within Europe at the ECO Platform, IBU fosters the process of mutual recognition on a bilateral level together with selected European and international programme holders according to EN 15804.
Hereby, IBU intends to save its members money and time when issuing their EPDs with others programme holders.
So far, seven mutual agreements between IBU und other programme holders regarding EPDs were finalized:
- the Swedish programme holder The International EPD System
- UL Environment from North America
- EPD Danmark (Denmark)
- EPD-Norge from Norway
- Global EPD/Aenor from Spain
- EPD Italy/ICMQ from Italy
- BRE from Great Britain
Contact for the realization of mutual recognition:
