PCR

STEP 1/5: FIND OR DEVELOP A PCR

A Product Category Rules (PCR) provides the specific requirements for an EPD within a particular group and are critical to the transparency and comparability of EPDs.

If a relevant PCR does not exist, it must be created.

FINDING A PCR DOCUMENT

PCRs already exist for many product groups. Those developed by The Australasian EPD Programme and the International EPD® System are all freely available on the International EPD® System database.

All EPDs for construction and building products must use PCR 2012:01 Construction products and construction services (EN 15804) as the core PCR.

Search for all existing PCRs here.

IF A RELEVANT PCR DOES NOT EXIST (OR HAS EXPIRED)

If a PCR does not exist for your product category of interest, one must be developed. PCR documents are prepared in an open, transparent and participatory process among companies and branch organisations to ensure the provision and input of appropriate product-specific knowledge and expertise.

Read more about the process of developing a PCR here.

If the validity period for a PCR has expired, the document can be updated and reactivated for a period of time.

Read more about updating a PCR here.

For assistance in finding or developing a PCR please contact the Secretariat.
