Interpretations

Three new interpretations were published (LI 10466–10468).

  • LEED interpretation 10466 provides clarifications for the applicability of structural engineered wood products in the LEED v4 IEQ Low-emitting Materials credit.
  • LEED interpretation 10467 provides guidance on what qualifies as a surface that is “designed to be illuminated.”
  • LEED interpretation 10468 provides guidance for net zero or off-grid projects attempting to achieve points under the LEED v4 EA credit Demand Response.

Corrections

  • The LEED v4 for Homes Design and Construction Rating System was updated to remove language regarding “qualified energy raters” and “verification team.”
  • The LEED v4 for Homes Design and Construction reference guide was updated to include guidance regarding the Extended Producer Responsibility.
  • The LEED v4 for Neighborhood Development Reference guide was updated to replace guidance on ISO/IEC Guide 65 or 17065 requirements for non-LEED rating systems.
