Registration fee

Please note! From January 1, 2021, we no longer charge per number of EPDs registered in bulk at the same time.

From January 1, 2021, for the registration fee we accumulate the number of EPDs per customer account during a calendar year so that you can benefit from reduced registration fees per EPD. We will transfer all by December 31, 2020 published EPDs per customer account to the new 2021 accounting system. Customers with EPDs will from January 1, 2021 start counting from the number of EPDs already in our programme, and not from zero.

The following registration fees are valid per EPD.

Registration Fees (per EPD)
EPD no. 1:1000 EUR
EPD no. 2, 3, 4:500 EUR
EPD no. 5 - 99:100 EUR
EPD no. 100 and more:50 EUR

With the first EPD registration of an organisation, the registration fee will be invoiced together with the annual fee. If an organisation seek to publish 5 EPDs, the registration cost for the EPDs would be as follows: 1000 EUR (1st EPD) + 500 EUR (2nd EPD) + 500 EUR (3rd EPD) + 500 EUR (4th EPD) + 100 EUR (5th EPD) = 2600 EUR.

Annual fee

The annual fee is a recurring fee to be paid per organisation, i.e. customer account, while its EPDs remains published and registered. As that, the annual fee is independent of the number of EPDs registered by the organisation.

Updates of registered EPDs during their validity (e.g. editorial updates) or after they have expired are included in the annual fee.

Annual Fees (by org. size)
Micro (1-10 employees):500 EUR
SME (11-250 employees):1000 EUR
MNE (>250 employees):2500 EUR
Industry associations:1000 EUR

With the first EPD registration of an organisation, a share of the annual fee of the present calendar year will be invoiced together with the registration fee: registration in Q1: 100%, Q2: 75%, Q3: 50%, Q4: 25%.
Annual fees after the first, partial calendar year are then normally invoiced at the beginning of the year.
