Becoming a member

Becoming a member 2017-11-28T14:45:42+00:00


Your company or association wants to create EPDs at IBU and/or wants to become an IBU member?

Full membership

Associations as well as manufacturers and distributers from the construction industry can become full members:

Companies can become full members at IBU themselves or through their membership in an association that has already become a member at IBU. EPDs can then be created at IBU, provided the respective product is included in association’s product range.

Associations that are full members at IBU can transfer their right to create EPDs to their member companies (“further declaration owners”).

Associated membership

In case of an associated membership this option is not available. The associations decide to solely create Association EPDs, which means that their members cannot create their own EPDs or individualized EPDs through their association. Should a company wish to create their own EPD they have to become a full member at IBU.

Supporting membership

Any organization, company or person that wants to support the guiding principles of IBU can become a supporting member (without participating in the IBU Programme). In order to file for a supporting membership just send a letter/ email to the IBU office.


You can find the necessary rules and regulation for members and the application form here.

The board takes the decision on the membership and the final admission.
