  1. This is definitely an interesting course and it would be useful to learn from other countries too. More and more countries and private tools are implementing the TC350 standards in their ‘green’ requirements, but important details still may differ. The European ECO Platform is currently being founded and expected to run at the end of Q1. EPD program operators co-operate in this Platform with the aim of mutual recognition of EPD data. The ECO Platform and specific courses like this will certainly help to get a better understanding. Check my blog on http://safeandsustainablebuildings.com/ to find more information on the use of TC350 standards.
