The Health Product Declaration Collaborative is pleased to announce the appointment of HPDC member representatives to three of the approved HPDC Standing Technical Subgroups (TSG): Content Inventory, Supply Chain, and Special Conditions. Each TSG will be responsible for maintaining and evolving the HPD Open Standard and its associated tools and methods in their specified area. The TSGs will respond to questions of HPD Open Standard application, conduct research and analysis, and develop proposals that will be referred to the HPDC Technical Committee and HPDC Board for approval. Each TSG includes representatives of all HPDC member categories – users (architects, designers, owners), manufacturers, and ecosystem (consultants, related tools and systems). The work of the TSGs will be supported by HPDC Staff.
Two additional HPDC Standing Technical Subgroups have been approved, and will work in the areas of Third Party Verification and Harmonization. A call for applicants for representative members for these TSGs will take place in the next few months.
Thank you to all of our members who responded to the call for applicants and who are supporting the adoption and evolution of the HPD Open Standard with your efforts.
