First certification body in the USA accredited for EPD process certification

Epsten Group has become the first US certification body to become accredited to perform EPD process certification and to offer such services connected to the International EPD® System. The accreditation was performed by A2LA.

"The International EPD System has quickly become a highly-sought after and recognizable global platform for environmental product declarations, and Epsten Group, Inc., is excited to be the first certification body in the United States accredited to the GPI scheme with the ability to have our clients’ products registered with the organization", says Lauren M. Wallace Director of Certifications and Consulting at Epsten Group

EPD process certification is the verification of an internal organisational process aimed to develop EPDs based on the General Programme Instructions and valid reference PCRs covered under the scope of certification. It can be a cost-effective way for companies wishing to create many EPDs.
