HPD Open Standard v2.3 Full Implementation Information

The HPD Open Standard v2.3 was released at the document level on May 12, 2022.  We are now completing the final testing and pilot phase of the development process. Full Implementation includes updates to the HPD Builder, HPD Public Repository, our APIs, and the Supplier HPD Builder extension tool.  

We plan to launch the full implementation of the HPD Builder v2.3 on July 11, 2022.  This means that as of July 11, the “active” version of HPD Open Standard will be Version 2.3, and all newly published HPDs will be in Version 2.3 from this date forward.

These are key updates to the HPD Open Standard:

  1. Visual Updates to Highlight Data Quality
  2. Increased Material and Substance Data Transparency and Quality
  3. Data Consistency for Special Conditions
  4. Additional Listings Added to HPD v2.3
  5. Improved Procedures for Accessories
  6. Update to the LEED Pre-Check to Comply with LEED Version 4.1

Key Points for Builder Users on Transition to v2.3 in the HPD Builder

  • To finish an HPD under HPD v2.2, you must publish it before July 8, 5PM PDT. date. After this time, HPD Builder will be offline until Monday, July 11 at 9AM PDT.
  • When the HPD Builder reopens on July 11, the active version of the HPD Open Standard will be Version 2.3.  All newly published HPDs will need to be compliant with v2.3.
  •  If you have a v2.2 HPD you want to update to v2.3, there will be an update capability provided in the HPD Builder.  The Builder Compliance function will let you know of any v2.3 compliance issues.  For most products, you will not have to report new data, other than as required to use the new features of v2.3.  However, some data has been restructured in v2.3, such as for Special Conditions.  In these cases the way this data is reported on the PDF format will be different from v2.2.
  •  Existing HPDs published before the release of HPD v2.3 remain valid under their existing Expiry Date.
