HPDs are created following the guidance of the HPD Open Standard, a leading standard in the building industry for reporting building product contents and associated health information.
We also recommend downloading the Manufacturer User Guide that provides manufacturers with practical “how to” information for creating HPDs.
The HPD Builder is an automated, web-based application that guides you through completing an HPD. Here is a starter list of the type of information that you need to collect in order to complete an HPD using the HPD Builder:
In addition to substance information, you will need to gather information about VOC Content (if your product is liquid or wet applied) and VOC emissions and other testing related to environmental impact or human health. Also, any accessories that are used for the installation and/or maintenance of the product.
Packaging materials removed prior to use and materials used for identification only need not be included in the inventory.
