What is BEP PVC?
The Best Environmental Practice standards cover criteria which addresses the environmental impacts associated with the manufacture and end life management of PVC products.
Why BEP is important?
The Best Environmental Practice (BEP) PVC criteria were originally determined by the Green Building Council of Australia in consultation with industry bodies and were subsequently included in Australian product standards for PVC pipes and fittings. The criteria cover the environmental impacts and health risks associated with the manufacture and end life management of PVC products used in buildings. They include strict minimum compliance requirements for PVC supply chain constituents, PVC resin production, PVC product manufacture and end of life management – recycling.
Vinidex is proud to manufacture PVC pipes and fittings in Australia to the BEP PVC requirements.
