HPD Public Repository

PLEASE NOTE:  A Quality Control Protocol for Publishing HPDs to the HPD Public Repository is being implemented, effective December 11, 2017.  This Protocol will assist us in ensuring that HPDs published to the HPD Public Repository meet the requirements for compliance, as stated in the HPD Open Standard.  The Quality Control Protocol will apply to all published HPDs, version 2.1 and subsequent versions, and will include an initial review of all, already-published version 2.1 HPDs.  For further information on the Quality Control Protocol, please click on this link. 

The HPD Public Repository is the authoritative source for published HPDs. When a manufacturer publishes an HPD using the HPD Builder, it is automatically uploaded to the Repository as a PDF file. HPDs that have been created by means other than the HPD Builder can also be uploaded to the Repository by the manufacturer. Once uploaded, an HPD is considered to be a “Public HPD.” Uploaded PDFs are then searchable and available to be downloaded by users – Architects, Designers, Project Teams, Property owners or any interested party. A simple search capability is available to aid in finding HPDs by Manufacturer, Product Name, CSI Classification or HPD version.

Gaining the LEED v4 Material Ingredient credit can be accomplished, using published HPDs from the Repository.  For specific guidance on using HPDs for the LEED MR credit, click here.

  • Please note: The download functionality of the Repository works by opening a new tab in the current window, this is often blocked by pop-up window blockers. Please make sure you always allow pop-ups from https://hpdrepository.hpd-collaborative.org.  When using Chrome, the browser will ask you to click two times, first to allow the pop-up and second to go to the link that opens the new tab which in our case is the HPD.  For other browsers, please consult browser instructions for allowing pop-ups.

HPD Library – in collaboration with SmithGroupJJR

With assistance and support from many industry leaders, SmithGroupJJR has developed a curated, searchable database that contains hundreds of HPDs which users can access, free of charge, to assist in their LEED documenting process. The HPDs in this library are reviewed and categorized to provide additional search capabilities for project teams to use in refining their investigation of products that will support their sustainability goals. Search criteria include: Level of Disclosure, LEED v4 MRc4 Compliance, Full Disclosure of Intentional Ingredients, Full Disclosure of Known Hazards, and Characterized, Screened, and Identified.
