This document is a regional (Australian) PCR appendix and a draft is available for open consultation until 2018-12-4. Any stakeholder may comment on the draft by completing the approved feedback form and submitting to the Australasian EPD Programme Secretariat (kelly@epd-australasia.com).

This document describes additional Product Category Rules for the assessment of the environmental performance of the product category asphalt mixtures (UN CPC 1533 & 3794). It outlines additional criteria to the main PCR for asphalt mixtures (PCR 2018:04 version 1.01; date 2018-10-10) published by the International EPD System for setting out the parameters to prepare an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®) according to ISO14025 and EN15804.

This PCR appendix is applicable for a particular asphalt mixture, from a specific asphalt plant with a specific production temperature. Hence, the design of the asphalt mixture is necessary to produce the specific EPD. The approach taken for this PCR may also be considered applicable and adaptable for other bitumen based products.

This PCR appendix is compliant with the main PCR, EN15804 and General Programme Instructions v3.0, and the Australasian Annex to the General Programme Instructions.
