Creating HPDs in Builder version 2.3 is easier than ever

The Builder represents the implementation of this newest and most advanced version of the HPD Open Standard. With each new version, HPDC adds powerful new features that make it quicker and easier for manufacturers to create more HPDs.

In May 2022 HPDC released version 2.3 of the Open Standard, with the updated Builder v2.3 released in July . HPDs completed under v2.3 or previous versions of the HPD Open Standard will remain valid through their existing expiry dates. The Builder ensures conformance to HPD Open Standard 2.3.

You may find it helpful to review the details regarding all of the latest information on version 2.3 of the Open Standard, prior to using the Builder.

Overview of What’s New in Builder Version 2.3

  • Increased Material and Substance Data Transparency and Quality provides manufacturers with a clearer picture of the data quality requirements and best practices for producing high quality HPD reports.
  • Additional Listings – The “Additional Listings” section adds substance screening results for key restricted substances lists – The v2.3 release adds: Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard Restricted Substances List (Basic Screening), Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List, US EPA Safer Chemicals Ingredients List (SCIL), Green Science Policy Institute Six Classes, REACH Exemption List, and Perkins&Will Precautionary List. Additional lists will be considered for inclusion as proposals are made to the Technical Committee.
  • Data Consistency for Special Condition Policies – HPD v2.3 revamps data-entry for Special Conditions, introducing enhanced completeness checks, better data validation, and smarter policies.
  • Additional Special Conditions Policies – For some types of materials, the ability to identify and characterize substances and/or CAS RNs may be challenging. In other cases there are specific issues relating to hazard screening using CAS RN. The Standard includes specific guidelines, or “Special Conditions,” to address these known issues. Version 2.3 adds Special Conditions in these areas: Metal Alloys, Minor Fasteners, Form-specific Hazards.
  • Enhanced HPD Compliance and Program Pre-Check Capabilities – manufacturers will receive more detailed feedback on compliance of reporting with the HPD Open Standard v2.3. Program pre-check capabilities, which have been available for LEED v4, are being greatly expanded to enable pre-check for additional certification and rating programs, including LEED v4.1.
