BRE Impact

BRE and IMPACT Compliance

BRE (UK) administer the Integrated Material Profile And Costing Tool (IMPACT) specification for building LCA tools which is understood to be the first software certification system by which eToolLCD could be formally externally assessed. The IMPACT compliance route was opened to developers in October 2013. In 2014 eTool signed a non-disclosure agreement with BRE for the purpose of exchanging information and ultimately having eTool LCA tested for IMPACT compliance. In late 20156 eTool was recognised as IMPACT compliant.  More information on the Impact Specification here.
