EPD verification

EPD verification

What does the term "declaration verified by a third party" mean?

Anyone can draw up EPDs for their products, and they can put any environmental information they want in the declarations. All declarations verified by a third party have been checked and proved to be a reliable source of environmental information. Such declarations are called "verified". The verification shall be carried out by an approved verifier in accordance with EN ISO 14025 and ISO 21930:2007.

The Building Information Foundation RTS sr approves declarations that have been checked by a third party. The Building Information Foundation RTS sr publishes information on all approved verifiers on its website. As such, companies are able to select the desired verifier from the list of verifiers.

Who can verify an RTS EPD?

EPDs shall be verified in accordance with ISO 14025:2006: "Verification: confirm, through the provision of objective evidence, that specified requirements have been fulfilled." ISO 14025:2006, section 3.9.

Verification is an extremely important and challenging part of the quality assurance process for EPDs. As referred to in the standard, the aim of the verification process is to verify that all declared information is correct and that all of the requirements set for the declaration have been met.
