How do I know if a particular LEED Interpretation applies to my project?
If a credit that a project is attempting is listed as applicable under the ‘Applicable credits’ section of the interpretation, the team must review the interpretation and apply it if it makes sense to do so. LEED project teams can choose to reference LEED Interpretations that do not list their credit as applicable if the project team believes it is appropriate. A final determination will be made during the certification review.
