  • The products are functionally similar
  • All of the information provided in the HPD Format Section 3: Certifications and Compliance applies to all products included
  • Each of the products has identical content OR the content differences between the products account for 10% or less of the total mass of each product (with the exception included in the HPD Open Standard—see Section 3 for those details)
  • All contents present in any of the products at or above the selected threshold(s) must be included in the Content Inventory
  • All variances between the grouped products must be explained in the Other Material or Product Notes and/or Substance Notes, if possible, or in the HPD Format Section 5: General Notes
