GlobalEPD Panel for steel building products

This sectorial panel establishes the criteria for environmental declarations for steel products used in construction and civil works, such as passive reinforcement steel for concrete, wire rods or structural profiles

AENOR is the Administrator of the Programme GlobalEPDfor verifying Environmental product declarations (EPD) in accordance with Standards ISO 14025 and EN 15804.​​​​​​


The panel for steel building products covers the following families of products:

  1. Hot rolled products made from ordinary and stainless steel and other alloy steels including heavy plates, hot-rolled coils, hot-rolled strips, hot-rolled sheets, rolled corrugated sheets, bars, structural sections, bars and commercial sections, wire rods, tracks, plates and couplings

  2. Cold rolled products and products covered in ordinary or stainless steel and other alloy steels:

    • From hot-rolled coils, including cold-rolled or coated strips, cold-rolled or coated coils, cold-rolled or coated sheets, coated or non-coated corrugated or formed sheets, coated or non-coated welded tubes, coated or non-coated non-welded tubes and coated or non-coated formed structures

    • From rolled wire rods, including wire, mesh and basic reinforcements, cables and lines and wires for pre and post-tension cement

  3. Passive reinforcements (frameworks)
