eBVD i Norden AB

The subsidiary eBVD i Norden is a company jointly owned by the Swedish Association for Construction Products and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute. The company creates and handles electronic construction product declarations, eBVDs.

The system for traceability, digital flow and the registration of construction product declarations

The electronic construction product declarations are the industry's latest format of construction product declarations as well as an industry standard.

Through a digital service the eBVD system provides a tool, where you as a construction product and material manufacturer, easily can create and handle your digital environmental information. The specific information that should be registered in the eBVD format has been decided by the whole of the construction industry.

The eBVD format is owned by the Swedish Association for Construction Products. Together with the construction and real estate industry they also monitor new rules and regulations and decide whether updates to the format is required. However, it is important to note that it is the suppliers who owns the content of the construction product declarations.

It is free to search for published construction product declarations in the eBVD-system.

What is an electronic construction product declaration, eBVD?

An electronic construction product declaration, an eBVD, is an industry format meant to create traceability through the value chain, as well as constitute the basis for assessment and choice between different products/materials.

The eBVD is a standard for the declaration of environmental information regarding construction materials. The format is created as an agreed upon foundation for the sharing of information regarding a chemical product or a construction material’s environmental aspect in different stages of their life cycle. The eBVD-system is a web application that enables companies to register, store and provide versions of their construction product declarations, as well as share them through xml, pdf and web-API. The first electronic construction product declaration was launched in the spring of 2016 and the latest, larger update took place in 2022. The format is continuously updated with regards to changes in regulations and demands on the market.

Digital environmental information

API (Application Programming Interface) enables a connection between different tools and databases. The API makes it possible to share environmental data in an open and transparent way.

The digital transfer of eBVD:s makes it efficient to both provide and use environmental information for construction materials. In order to offer such digital transfer, we create connections through API between the eBVD-system and other databases. This is undertaken in collaboration with our clients.

eBVD i Norden AB has agreements with the following organizations, to provide them the means of retrieving construction product declarations from the eBVD-database:

• BASTA • Finfo • GBR • VVS-Info

It is up to each individual company in the eBVD-system to approve whether their eBVD:s can be shared through API with these organizations or not.

If you are interested in connecting to our API, please contact ebvd-support@ivl.se for more information.
