IBU Type III Environmental Declaration (IBU Environmental Product Declaration)

IBU Type III Environmental Declaration (IBU Environmental Product Declaration) logo

This is a Type III declaration for building products. It is based on ISO 14025 as well as ISO 21930 and EN 15804 and declares environmental information on a pass/fail basis. It is meant to identify properties of building products that are relevant to the environmental performance of buildings, and it is based on a Life Cycle Assessment.

There are currently 96 declaration holders that together have 230 Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), as they can obtain multiple EPDs for different products.

All EPDs are based on a so called Product Category Rules (PCR), which define the rules for a specific group (category) of building products. The PCRs are based on general program rules (“General Principles”) and their underlying norms (ISO 14025, ISO 21930, EN 15804).
