FAQs

How do I update my project's confidential status?

To update your project’s status, you can either: have your project administrator contact GBCI, or update the confidentiality information directly in LEED Online via LEED Online for v4 or v2009 or LEED Online v2. Once your certified project is listed as non-confidential, it will display in the project directory and you will be authorized to use the LEED certification logos. It may take up to 24 hours for the project directory to update.
