1. Replace language under Documentation for wood
and bio-based products with the following:
Products with bio-based claims must be legally harvested by exporting and receiving country.
Manufacturers/Programs must provide documentation on the specific product that includes the type of bio-based raw material
used within the product. In addition, products must have either of the following:
o Confirmation the ASTM
D6866 test method was conducted which validates the percent by weight of bio-based material
within the product.
o Product has been certified to the USDA
BioPreferred Program and includes the Voluntary Labeling verification of bio-based content via ASTM
6866 or ISO 16620-2 testing.
About the BioPreferred Voluntary Labeling initiative:
Some products listed on the United States Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred Program Catalog include a voluntary labeling logo that indicates the biobased content of the product has been verified per ASTM
D6886 testing. www.biopreferred.gov/BioPreferred
3. Revise Required Documentation section to read:
Follow LEED v4 reference guide documentation requirements with the following modifications:
Documentation requirements for Option 1 are no longer applicable.
Instead, submit the LEED v4.1 MR Building Product calculator and documentation of product claims for credit requirements for either 20% by cost or 40% by cost threshold.
For products that have been verified for LEED by GBCI
, include ID numbers in the building product calculator. Additional documentation is not necessary to be included to LEED Online.
