These ÖKOBAUDAT datasets (current release 2023-I as of 15.06.2023) are compliant to EN 15804+A2 and have been generated based on GaBi background data. All EPD datasets are compliant with the „Principles for acceptance of LCA data in ÖKOBAUDAT“.
Accepted EPD programme operators can constantly transfer datasets to ÖKOBAUDAT. A new ÖKOBAUDAT release is published approx. once a year with the update of the generic datasets. On-going minor additions or corrections are dated and documented in a correction list.
In February 2020, the new standard DIN EN 15804+A2 with extensive changes to the impact indicators was adopted. The impact indicators calculated according to the new version of the standard can therefore no longer be compared with the impact indicators according to the old DIN EN 15804+A1 and must not be used together. Data records in accordance with DIN EN 15804+A2 are therefore displayed in a separate ÖKOBAUDAT database.They will in future serve as mandatory data source within the Assessment System for Sustainable Building (BNB).
These ÖKOBAUDAT datasets (current version of the generic datasets: 2021-II as of 25.06.2021) are compliant to EN 15804+A1 and have been generated based on GaBi background data. All EPD datasets are compliant with the „Principles for acceptance of LCA data in ÖKOBAUDAT“.
Accepted EPD programme operators can constantly transfer datasets (which were verified before October 1st, 2022) to ÖKOBAUDAT. These will continue to be included in ÖKOBAUDAT according to EN 15804+A1.
ÖKOBAUDAT datasets according to EN 15804+A1 currently serve as mandatory data source within the Assessment System for Sustainable Building (BNB).
These datasets are compliant with the ÖKOBAUDAT requirements but are based on ecoinvent background data. They are only by exception to be used within the Assessment System for Sustainable Building (BNB). Here you can find datasets compliant with DIN EN 15804+A1 as well as DIN EN 15804+A2.
