Hi LEEDuser Experts!
I posted this and a similar question in the MR Credit BPDO - Material Ingredients forum, but it's directly related to EPDs, so it'll be nice to get confirmation here. I want to know if Type III EPDs that reference a broad category of products are acceptable? I'm referring specifically to an EPD for Dow Styrofoam Insulation. Dow produces a number of products (e.g. Perimate, Plazamate, Duramate) that fall under this umbrella but would still be considered separate products. These specific products (Perimate, Plazamate, Duramate) are not mentioned explicitly in the EPD.
Thank you for your guidance!

It looks like all those products are actually explicitly mentioned in the EPD, under the 'Applications and Uses' section.

Ah, perfect, good catch, Maggie! I'm not sure how I missed that before! In that case, it seems likely that multiple products should be allowed to be submitted under one EPD as long as they're explicitly mentioned. This has been confirmed in practice for HPDs, but I'm wondering if anyone has successfully submitted multiple products under one EPD.
