In response to the HPD Open Standard version 2.1, which was publicly released on May 19, 2017, we have upgraded the HPD Builder to reflect changes in the standard.
For more information on these changes, and what they mean for your experience with the Builder, please see the following Link: July 18th Builder Update Memo.
Builder 2.1 is the most accurate and efficient way to manage the reporting of building product contents and associated health information, using the Health Product Declaration (HPD) Open Standard.

A web-based application to create, publish and manage HPDs
Designed to HPD Open Standard 2.1 requirements
Uses HBN Pharos Chemical Material Library (CML) to provide reliable substance and hazard information
Major Benefits and Features
Assists manufacturers in preparing HPDs compliant with HPD Open Standard 2.1

What’s New in Version 2.1?
Ensures conformance to HPD Open Standard 2.1
The Builder now provides three options for reporting the content inventory:
- Nested Inventory with Material Level Thresholds
- Basic Inventory with Product Level Thresholds
- Nested Inventory with Product Level Thresholds
Product level thresholds are now available to harmonize with LEED v4 requirements
Residuals and Impurities notes now have a dedicated area adjacent to the Material or Product Notes
LEED Pre-Check Indicator is now available as an optional feature. It is a mechanical check by the Builder to see if all fields required by LEED have been filled out.
The Builder now provides an automatic completeness check as the HPD is created
Builder users are now able to reduce the clutter in their dashboards by deleting product records that have not been published and deleting products that have no product records
Preparer ID and Third Party Verification will be available when the HPDC Third Party Verification program is released later in 2017
