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.
