How Verified HPDs Are Perceived

The HPD is a self-reported declaration of product contents and associated health information. Non-verified HPDs have an important role to play in the material health field serving as the standard specification for the accurate, reliable and consistent reporting of product contents and associated health information, for products used in the built environment.  

A verified HPD adds a valuable dimension of third party objectivity that is perceived and valued by the marketplace as trustworthy. 

HPDC’s TPV program is not a certification or declaration that a product is “safer” or the more preferable choice. The HPD Open Standard specification is harmonized with a growing number of rating and certification standards in the building industry that use HPD data to make health claims or product recommendations. Those programs often prefer or require verified HPDs for this purpose.
