Approved Individual Verifiers

Independent verifiers

EPDs must be independently verified before registration and publication.
There are two types of verifiers that may carry out this process:

  • Accredited Certification Bodies (see here)
  • Approved Individual Verifiers.

Only Individual Verifiers currently listed on this page are approved by EPD International AB to carry out EPD verification to The International EPD System.

Individual Verifiers work independently and without the direct involvement of the Secretariat in seeking out assignments; the Secretariat is independent and not involved in this market transaction. I.e. manufacturer and verifier arrange the process from contacting to signing of the contract for verification. The Secretariat recommends manufacturers to contact 2-3 independent verifiers when requesting a quote for verification.

Individual Verifiers are free to offer their services in any country, except Australia and New Zealand where an additional approval by EPD Australasia is needed.

When you want to get the contact details for our approved verifiers, please log-in to our EPD Portal.
