The Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) of construction products are intended for professionals and the general public. In recent years, they have become mainstream in providing information on the environmental impacts of the building and construction activities. To ensure the reliability of EPDs, they must be verified.
The INIES database is the French “FDES” (French EPD) referencing database. Since July 2017, to publish a French EPD in this database, it must be verified by an independent third party, approved by the INIES Program.
Since 2018, we have been approved FDES Authorized Auditor for the INIES database
What is an EPD verification? Verification gives credibility to an EPD, by verifying that all the information provided is justified and correct (types of data chosen, approximations, allocations, etc.).
The verifier must verify a certain number of points provided by INIES:
- Verification of formal compliance with standards requirement
- Verification of technical and scientific validity
- Verification of communication aspects
A verification certificate is provided at the end of the verification process.
You can consult the official list of EDP verifiers here.
