Project registration

Here you will find information and instructions on how to register projects for DGNB Certification.

The certification process is handled by DGNB GmbH, a fully-owned subsidiary of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) based in Stuttgart. Through DGNB Certification, you expand your know-how in terms of sustainability and consistently bring your brand to the forefront. You can also benefit from the high level of attention your project receives as a result of certification.

Since the DGNB System Software Update V2.8, project registration has been carried out in the DGNB System Software. The applicant, project manager and DGNB Auditor must be registered there. If you are not yet registered, you can register yourself directly in the DGNB System Software. Instructions for self-registration, project registration and the DGNB System Software in general can be found here.
