EcoStandard is evolving!
2016 has been an exciting year for EcoStandard and as the year quickly approaches the end, we are already planning continuous improvements for 2017.
A new development is that our certifications will now be valid for 3 years. Our intention is for products to continuously strive for better performance, but have realised that improvements to process and / or design of products takes a little longer than 12 months. Therefore, in the interest of ensuring that we are offering the best for both product manufacturers and verifiable information, we have decided to extend our validity. However, if a product wishes to renew prior to the 3 year cycle coming to a close, they are able to apply to do so!
Once off certifications!
We have also developed a process for once off certifications for those products that are location and site specific. We work in an every changing and innovative space and on some projects, building materials are specific to that application. EcoStandard would like to recognise these products and provide the third party verification of their green claims. This is an exciting development.
In light of the above, we have revised our fees. These are still free to view on our website: www.ecostandard.co.za.
A new website in 2017! Industry events! Much more!
