As a third-party verifier, you play an important role in supporting the following key objectives of what the HPD Open Standard does.
As discussed elsewhere in this training, It’s also important to be aware of what the HPD is not intended to do.
The HPD’s report is for the product “as delivered to the job site”—a snapshot in time. There are life-cycle implications, but it is not a life-cycle-oriented report
The HPD focuses on objective data reporting for substances, with a focus on hazards, an inherent property of chemicals. Manufacturers may add context on exposure and risk in the notes (with citations).
The HPD report is intended to be used as a baseline data report for use by other certifications, programs, etc.
