Best Practices for Hazard Screening
The purpose of including Hazard Screening data in the HPD Open Standard is to facilitate further analysis of environmental and health information about products, and is available to all users of HPDs in a manner that is accurate, reliable and consistent across products and product categories.
Hazard Screening is an evolving discipline. By including the specific aspects of how Hazard Screening is implemented in the HPD Open Standard in our Emerging Best Practices section, HPDC acknowledges and supports the continued development of the methods in this field and the work of the community of practice to evolve a consensus around these methods. This consensus is what is reflected in the HPD Open Standard and in this guide.
