Thursday, September 10, 2015
NSDO is delighted to announce that it has issued to public comment its second set of Standards for a product category in the building industry: Draft NS 11102.1, Labelling and Declaration of Environmental Attributes of Building Products—Type 1 Product Category Ecolabel Standard – Roofing Systems, and Draft NS 11102.2, Labelling and Declaration of Environmental Attributes of Building Products—Type 111 Environmental Declarations Standard – Roofing Systems.
These draft Standards are a basis for setting an ecolabel or developing an environmental declaration with criteria derived from life cycle assessment. These draft Standards follow the publication in early 2015 of NS 11101.1 and NS 11101.2 covering masonry products. These standards address the need to establish multi-criteria ecolabels and environmental declarations for specific product categories under Australian conditions. The drafts are available free of charge here. Comment closes on 22 October 2015 and all comments should be submitted on the form found here.
The technical basis for the roofing systems Standards is contained in NSDO MP 102-2015, Product Category Baseline Assessment for Roofing Systems, which is scheduled for publication mid October.
