Health Product Declaration Verification

Growing concerns over chemical hazards in buildings has prompted many large architecture firms to request Health Product Declarations (HPDs) from building product manufacturers. HPDs disclose the potential chemical concerns of products against various “hazard” lists in accordance with the Health Product Declaration Standard. This open standard was developed to provide a consistent reporting format that increases the quality and availability of product content and health information.

Understanding chemical ingredients, hazards, and appropriate disclosure levels can be intimidating. In response to manufacturer demand, GreenCircle is currently assisting in the development of a system to verify that HPDs have been completed thoroughly and correctly in conjunction with the Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC) Standard. To ensure accurate disclosure, GreenCircle will use in house expertise to verify your completed HPD for technical accuracy against guidelines established by the HPDC.

*HPDS v1.1

Note: Full Disclosure of Known Hazards is the recommended level to complete and verify an HPD. Residual disclosure levels of 100 or 1,000 ppm (parts per million) are also recommended if the manufacturer’s goal is to contribute to LEED v4 credit options. GreenCircle understands hesitancy in the supply chain, and by manufacturers alike, to disclose proprietary information; however, GreenCircle will work within your restraints and directly with your supply chain to ensure accuracy of claims while respecting intellectual property concerns.
