Achieving Best Practice PVC
Under the PVC Credit guidelines, product suppliers of the common PVC applications will need to provide a third party verification certificate that their products meet the PVC Credit best practice guidelines.
To learn more about the guidelines and the audit requirements, review the Auditor Verification Guidance document [PDF] published by the Green Building Council of Australia in conjunction with the PVC industry.
For more information, see PVC Credit in Green Star, or visit the PVC Credit Resource Library.
Seeking use of the recognised BEP PVC mark?
To assist manufacturers and suppliers of PVC products to demonstrate to the market that their products are compliant, the Vinyl Council of Australia has established a Best Environmental Practice PVC registration system and licence mark.
The BEP PVC trade mark is licensed only to those PVC products, upon application, that demonstrate third party verification of compliance under the PVC Credit guidelines. The VCA is the registered owner of this licence trade mark - the BEP PVC mark.
Contact the Vinyl Council or download the Information for Applicants booklet [PDF] to obtain further information on how to register your company and apply to become a licensee of the BEP PVC licence mark.
