SuPIM — IBU’s new product information system
SuPIM is IBU’s new product information system for members and non-members, in which manufacturers can put together the construction product-related requirements of the green building certification systems DGNB, BNB, LEED and BREEAM. SuPIM is thus the central storage location for all product-related sustainability data. These are brought together in your data sheet and supplemented by evidence documents.
As a result, SuPIM is a useful tool for auditors of the implemented building certification systems. All product data relevant to certification, including evidence documents, can be viewed in compact form and can be downloaded.
In addition, SuPIM serves the actors involved in the product selection process, such as architects, planners and builders, and serves as a database with numerous research functions.
The green building systems DGNB (version 2018), BNB (version 2015), LEED (version v4) and BREEAM (versions DE 2018 and International 2016) are currently implemented. Newer versions will be updated as soon as they become relevant to the market.
The data is entered using the IBU’s EPD online tool, which has been expanded accordingly. Manufacturers can rely on the help of the IBU office at any time.
For quality assurance purposes, the IBU offers manufacturers a check of the data entered for compliance with the underlying documents. If this is done, this will be marked accordingly on the created product data sheet.
The setting of product data in SuPIM is open to members as well as non-members in order to ensure high market penetration. The use of SuPIM is free of charge. In the future, a flat fee will be charged for data verification.
