LEED Interpretations and Addenda

Published on Posted in LEED
LEED Interpretations Database

We’re working to make LEED easier to use, and over the next few months, you’ll notice several improvements to LEED Interpretations and rating system and reference guide addenda. The first step: we’re unveiling a new platform.

Welcome to our simplified, searchable database housing all the LEED Interpretations and addenda you need for your project in one central location.

Looking for LEED Interpretations for a specific rating system? Add search options to further filter your search results. Need results filtered by international applicability? Only want to see addenda added after a specific date? The new database makes specific searches possible, while also letting you save your search parameters for future visits. Possibilities are endless when using the new database.

You’ll also find a LEED Interpretations tab under each credit within the LEED credit library that displays all LEED Interpretations and addenda applicable to that credit.

Update your bookmarks! All content previously available in the old database is now live on

Not sure how to get started? Watch our video tour of the databases’ new features and functions, or join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, April 9 at 2:00pm EDT. Register now »

Thanks Theresa.

Go back to the old platform. The new platform doesn't work. Quit fixing things that aren't broke!
