Application form and other documents

Next steps

After processing your application and payment of the appropriate fee, you will be asked to submit a more detailed Data Collection form that will allow us to complete the Profile. During the profiling process we will carry out a verification visit to your manufacturing site(s). On completion of the work you will be issued with a certificate for the product(s) and a profile report. At that point you will then be permitted to use the BRE Global Environmental Profile Certification Mark in your promotional material, subject to our approval of its use in context.

Your certificate will then be listed here on GreenBookLive. The duration of each profiling project varies depending on a number of factors including the number of products to be certificated and the number of sites and amount of data involved. However, once the data has been verified following the visit, we aim to complete the process within a maximum of 10 weeks.

We treat all information provided to us by our clients for the purpose of generating an Environmental Profile as confidential. They are subject to the terms of our BRE Client Confidentiality Agreement.
