Dual registration into other programmes

As part of its efforts for international harmonization of EPD information, the International EPD® System has made mutual recognition agreements with three established EPD programmes: IBU in Germany, AENOR GlobalEPD in Spain and EPD Norway.

These agreements allow EPDs that are registered in the International EPD® System to also be published in any of the other programmes (and vise-versa), carrying two registration numbers and two logotypes for increased market recognition.

Contact the Secretariat for further information, and to receive an application form for dual registration.
