LEED Interpretations are official answers to technical questions about LEED.

What, exactly, are LEED Interpretations? When people make formal technical inquiries about implementing LEED on a project, USGBC issues an official answer to clarify.

The interpretations are meant to help project teams understand how their projects can meet LEED requirements, as well as further explain existing options. Every quarter, LEED Interpretations are published in the LEED Addenda online database, after review by USGBC's LEED committees.

Project teams must take into account all LEED Interpretations posted before the registration date.

Learn more about addenda and interpretations in our Help Center.
