AENOR currently has agreements with respect to the following organisations: 

  • EPD International AB (EIAB), Administrator of the Programme International EPD® System - Sweden

  • ​​Institut Bauen und Um​welt e.V. (IBU) - Germany

  • ICMQ, Istituto di ​certificazione e marchio qualità per prodotti e servizi per le costruzioni​, Administrator of the Programme EPD Italy - Italy

The aim of AENOR's international activity in this field is to guarantee that verified environmental communication reinforces access by organisations to new markets and facilitates the marketing of their products.

Environmental Declarations verified by IBU can be recognised by AENOR.
