Converting EPDs into FDESs

ATARA converts EPDs into FDESs - Fiche de Déclaration Environnementale et Sanitaire - for all your construction products, in accordance with standard NF EN 15804+A2 and its national complement.

ATARA has developed the most comprehensive and competitive solution on the market.

ATARA relies on solid human expertise and the use of Augmented Intelligence tools developed by our R&D department.

What is an FDES?

Drawing up an FDES (Environmental and Safety Declaration Sheet) is governed by standard NF EN 15804+A2 and its national complement.

This declaration, drawn up under the responsibility of the manufacturers
is based on the results of the Life Cycle Assessment of their product.

It summarizes the characteristics of a product for all phases of its life cycle :

A1- Raw materials
A2- Raw materials transportation
A3- Production
A4- Transporting the product to the installation site
A5- Implementation
B1 to B7- Processing
C1 to C4- End of life

FDESs can be : 

     > Individual when they concern a single manufacturer.

     > Collective when they concern several manufacturers.

French regulations require environmental declarations to be verified by an independent third party.

The list of accredited auditors for the Inies program is available at: https: //www.inies.fr/ressource/liste-des-verificateurs-habilites-au-programme-inies/

What's the difference with an EPD?

An FDES is an EPD.

FDESs are the specifically French form of EPDs, which meet :

     > the specifics of the national supplement to NF EN 15804+A2, 

     > and the Inies Program reference framework.
