The Global GreenTag International Certification Standard is Ready for Review

The Global GreenTag International Standard development team invite you to review and comment by Monday, October 28th on our latest product certification Standard v4.1 Your participation is valued. The Global GreenTag Standards Stakeholder program requires open and transparent processes, with adequate (minimum 30 day) comment periods and transparent reporting of outcomes with results of the review to be made readily available.

What's new?

This v4.1 review of the The Standard is a Minor Review. Many of the changes are procedural e.g. minor error corrections and changes such as those due to Australia having moved from EU based Chemical Hazard assessments to the UN Globally Harmonised System (Au-GHS) e.g. changing language from 'R-Phrases' to 'H-Statements' and making interpretation easier for international use of the Standard now Global GreenTag is active in so many overseas markets.

The Standard now also addresses legislative changes in areas such as:

– National Construction Code -Fire Safety;
– Federal and NSW Modern Slavery;
– QLD Human Rights Act;
– Various Normative Standards reviewed and versions updated;

as well as introducing new Global GreenTag Services formally under the auspices of the Standard:

– Product Health Declarations (PHDs);
– HealthRATE;
– CarbonRATE;
– WaterRATE and other future services.

The GreenTag Standard Scope Has Expanded!

We also have explicitly expanded the scope of the Standard to allow GreenTag to specifically certify credits within rating tools that sit outside the actual bounds of the Standard, ie by adopting the specific requirements of the rating tool credits or labelling systems themselves to certify against including but not limited to WELL, LEED and LBC.

We have also:

GreenTag Standard v4.1 Draft is available for public review until Monday, October 28th, 2019.
