The renewal of registration (after 5 years) involves the application of a new rate that have arisen in the case of changes to the document (EPD), represents about 80% of the initial registration fee, and validate the publication of the EPD System for 5 years.

The payment of the maintenance annual fee must be made when the EPD is registered accordingly to the validation period (up to 5 years).

If the company wants that the EPD is registered together in the ECOPlatform, the documents must be submitted in english.
VAT is not included in the values indicated for the Registration Fee and the Annual Maintenance Fee and may undergo periodic review.
Registration of DAP verified abroad
In the framework of the mutual recognition of EPDs between registration programme operators as members of the ECOPlatform, the DAPhabitat system recognises the verification performed by verifiers which are validated by those partner systems, if their EPD declaration of compliance is delivered at the time of registration.
