How Can HPDs Help My Business Grow?
HPDs make it easy for Project Teams to keep track of and monitor product research and communicate with manufacturers.
Incorporating health considerations in your building product selection is essential for architectural, interior design, or related project teams. Pursuing sustainable building certifications like LEED, WELL, Clean Production Action, and BIFMA can increase billable hours and qualify you for growth opportunities. HPDs follow the HPD Open Standard endorsed by industry leaders, providing an efficient way to select products that meet specific build criteria, perform hazard screening, and match most rating and certification programs.
With the HPD Public Repository, maintained by HPDC, manufacturers can upload their HPDs for easy access to information about building products by architects, designers, project teams, and interested parties. The repository’s search feature allows users to find HPDs by manufacturer, product name, CSI MasterFormat® classification, or HPD version.

What is the HPD Open Standard?
The HPD Open Standard provides a rigorously-defined specification for a standard format and instructions to accurately, reliably and consistently report the material contents of a building product, and associated health information. Since its initial release in 2012, the Standard has been voluntarily adopted by the majority of leading green building rating and certification programs, with the goal of harmonizing the reporting of the data encompassed within the Standard across all industry programs.
It ensures that the underlying information upon which ratings and certifications are made is accurate, reliable and consistent across green building programs. The end result is higher quality data and more efficient reporting and use of data across the entire green building ecosystem.
