HPD 2.3 Standard Update

Major Enhancements In HPD v2.3 Update

Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC) is excited to announce the release of HPD v2.3, a significant update to the Health Product Declaration (HPD) framework. This update introduces several key features that aim to enhance the transparency and sustainability of building products, further promoting a healthier built environment.

The HPD v2.3 update incorporates valuable enhancements that respond to industry needs and user feedback, addressing critical areas in building product disclosure and reporting. The new features introduced in HPD v2.3 include:

  • Anti-Microbial Reporting: Responding to user demands, HPDC has incorporated a uniform reporting method for substances with antimicrobial properties intentionally added to building products. Manufacturers can now provide optional reporting on HPDs for these substances, streamlining the disclosure process and eliminating the need for individual reporting methodologies.
  • Social Equity Location Indicator: Recognizing the significance of location in assessing social equity practices within supply chains, HPDC has integrated a powerful tool that leverages various databases related to location-based information. This tool enables manufacturers to gain insights into their supply chain performance. In the future HPD users can utilize it to apply for certifications based on social equity indicators.
  • Product Type Field: To enhance product specificity and improve searchability, HPDC has introduced a comprehensive product type field. This feature provides a translation of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) numbers, making it easier for users unfamiliar with CSI classifications to understand the products’ characteristics.
  • Polymer Special Condition: HPDC recognizes the importance of educating manufacturers and their supply chains about the hazards associated with polymers. Hazards related to polymers can be complicated and confusing. To address this, HPD v2.3 includes a reporting methodology for polymers without a Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN), ensuring thorough disclosure of polymer-related hazards.
  • ChemFORWARD: As part of HPDC’s commitment to supporting optimization in the built environment, HPD v2.3 introduces ChemFORWARD as an additional listing. This innovative addition not only highlights hazards but also provides information on safer alternatives. By promoting the adoption of safer alternatives, HPDC aims to drive healthier and more optimized choices within the industry.

The HPD v2.3 update reflects HPDC’s dedication to continuous improvement and its leadership in driving positive change within the industry. By providing manufacturers, specifiers, and users with more robust and comprehensive tools, HPDC remains at the forefront of sustainable and transparent building product disclosure.
