Registration fee

For the registration fee, it is charged according to the number of registered EPDs per organisation account throughout one calendar year, starting from 1 January to 31 December. This price scheme provides organisations with discounted fee for registering EPDs via our program within the same calendar year.

The following pricing scheme for registration fee applies when registering new EPDs during one calendar year:

Registration Fees (per registered EPD)
1st EPD:€ 1000
2nd - 4th EPD:€ 500
5th - 99th EPD:€ 100
100th EPD and above:€ 50

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 empl.):1000 EUR
MNE (>250 empl.):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.

Here, you will find an overview of your EPDs, but also the invoices for new EPD publications. Invoices are generated on a quarterly base, i.e. EPDs are paid during the next quarter following their publication date.

The invoicing process
Initially, a pro forma will be created in the EPD owner's company dashboard and the EPD owner will be notified via email. After 7 days of no action, the pro forma will be accepted and an invoice will be generated at the same place. Reminders are sent via email to the email adresses listed under the company settings.

Holding organisations with various subsidiaries
Company groups wishing to register EPDs from multiple companies in the group are encouraged to contact the Secretariat to receive support in setting up the account in the EPD Portal.

Payment terms
Payments are due 30 days from the date of the invoice from EPD International AB. The programme operator will de-register EPDs if the registration fee or annual fee is not paid in time, or non-conformance with the requirements in the General Programme Instructions of the International EPD® System and/or the programme operator’s guidelines, directive and policies for EPD services.

Value Added Taxes (VAT)
The prices are specified without VAT and may be revised in the future. International transactions are exempt from VAT if the VAT number of the organisation has been provided in the registration form.
