RTS EPDs are approved by a workgroup of the PT18 RT EPD Committee of the Building Information Foundation RTS sr. The workgroup ensures that the declaration, the verification certificate and the application contain all essential information. We notify the company of the approval, after which the company has the right to use the RTS EPD logo in conjunction with the declaration.
PT18 will approve EPDs compiled according to EN15804 + A1 until 7/2022. From 8/2022 PT18 will approve EPDs’ compiled only according to EN15804+A1+A2 (EN15804:2019).
In accordance with EN 15804, declarations are valid for five years after verification. One can apply for the right to use the RTS EPD logo during the period of validity of the declaration.
The approved declarations are listed on the our website where all approved and valid declarations are listed.
