HPD Third Party Verification Benefits – Competitive Edge, Brand Equity

The HPD Collaborative (HPDC) Third Party Verification Program has been established to manage the credentialing and methodology for independent review and verification of completed Health Product Declarations (HPDs). The basic quality assurance provided by the Third Party Verification Program is that the verification is conducted through an objective process by an independent, approved Third Party Verifier.

Trust Through Independent Verification

For Manufacturers, the Third Party Verification program provides a reliable source for approved consultants who can help in preparing and verifying HPDs. It gives manufacturers the opportunity to have your HPDs verified by an independent and recognized expert as fully compliant with the HPD Open Standard, providing your current and prospective customers with an added level of confidence in your products.

Enhanced Company Reputation, PR Opportunities

The verification process also allows for greater confidence in the information provided by your suppliers, as well as enhancing your company reputation by taking steps to assure your products meet the highest possible Project requirements.
