PCR information

An update has been initiated and will be based on the recently-published version 3.0 of the General Programme Instructions. Please contact the PCR moderator if you wish to become involved in the update. Dates are preliminary.


This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of

  • UN CPC 3812 "Other furniture, of a kind used in offices" and
  • UN CPC 3814 "Other furniture n.e.c. (not elsewhere classified)" 

and the declaration of this performance by an EPD.

This PCR initially covered only UN CPC 38140. UN CPC 3812 and CPC 3814 were possible to merge due to methodological similarities and have been named "Other furniture used in offices and n.e.c." If desirable, also other PCRs of the Group 381 (Furniture), once expired, could join this multiple PCR, eventually resulting in one multiple PCR for Furniture.

Any comments to this PCR document may be given on the PCR Forum on www.environdec.com or directly to the PCR moderator during the period of validity. The PCR Moderator should initiate a revision process before the validity time expires to give due time for announcing and collecting comments.

EPDs shall be based on the latest version of the PCR, and refer to the version number and date of the PCR used. The production of new PCR versions does not affect the certification period of EPDs that are already published.

The PCR document may be downloaded in PDF format on the right side of this page. The free registration will also enable you to post comments on the PCR Forum.
