HOW TO APPLY FOR A PASS LABEL
It is simple and straightforward process to apply for a GreenSpec PASS endorsement. The first step is to fill in an application form and submit it. This will be reviewed and you’ll be advised whether the product has a good chance of being endorsed. It’s like a pre-MOT test – and is completely free.
If you’d then like to proceed with the endorsement assessment, you will need to supply as much information as possible to support the argument that the product is ‘Green’. The GreenSpec PASS review panel will then analyse the environmental information, while construction data will be sent to GreenSpec’s technical performance review partners (architects Stephen George & Partners ) to assess its fitness for purpose.
If your product passes the assessment, on payment of the endorsement fee you will receive a PASS endorsement certificate, a copy of the PASS logo and details of the product will be published on the GreenSpec website’s Directory of Green Products, where 50,000 construction specifiers visit each month.
