Costs and fees

The funding for managing the International EPD® System comes mainly from the fee structure connected to the registration and publication of EPDs:

  • Registration fee (a one-time cost)
  • Annual fee (recurring)

The information below applies to all countries, except in those countries where EPD registration is handled via a regional partner. These countries are currently: Australia, Brazil, Chile, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Turkey and Vietnam.

The prices below are specified without VAT and may be revised in the future. International transactions are exempt from VAT if the VAT number of the organisation has been provided in the registration form.

The invoice address and VAT information provided in the registration form should be to the EPD owner, and not to the consultant or the verifier.

Payments are due 30 days from the date of the invoice from EPD International AB. The programme operator will de-register EPDs if the registration fee or annual fee is not paid in time, or non-conformance with the requirements in the General Programme Instructions of the International EPD® System and/or the programme operator’s guidelines, directive and policies for EPD services.

Registration fee

The registration fee is a one-time fee, which is invoiced upon EPD registration.

From January 1, 2021,  we newly accumulate the number of EPDs per customer account during a calendar year so that you can benefit from reduced registration fees per EPD. We will transfer all by December 31, 2020 published EPDs per customer account to the new 2021 accounting system. Customers with EPDs will from January 1, 2021 start counting from the number of EPDs already in our programme, and not from zero. Please note that we no longer charge registration fees per number of EPDs registered at the same time.

Annual fee

The annual fee is a recurring fee to be paid per organisation while its EPDs remains published and registered. The organisation shall inform the programme operator when the EPDs are to be deregistered and no longer published.

The annual fee is independent of the number of EPDs registered by the organisation.

Updates of registered EPDs during their validity (e.g. editorial updates) or after they have expired are included in the annual fee.

Type of organisationAnnual fee
Micro companies (1-10 employees) €500
Small or medium-sized companies (11-250 employees) €1 000
Large companies (MNEs) (>250 employees) €2 500
Industry associations (Sector EPD) €1 000

Company groups wishing to register EPDs from multiple companies in the group are encouraged to contact the Secretariat.

With the first EPD registration of an organisation, a share of the annual fee of the present calendar year will be invoiced together with the registration fee: registration in Q1: 100%, Q2: 75%, Q3: 50%, Q4: 25%. Annual fees after the first, partial calendar year are then normally invoiced at the beginning of the year.

The organisation shall inform the programme operator when the EPDs are to be deregistered and no longer published. If the last EPD of a company is de-registered, an invoice will be then be sent with the share of the annual fee of the elapsed part of the year.
