This PCR is a set of specific rules, requirements and guidelines for developing Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for the product category of unreinforced concrete.
An EPD according to this PCR will provide consistent and quantified environmental information for an unreinforced concrete product on a harmonized and scientific basis. This PCR is intended to be compliant with EN 15804 and therefore cradle to gate EPD produced in accordance with this PCR should be usable within Europe within any building or construction works level environmental assessment compliant with EN 15804 and/or EN 15978.
To register EPDs based on this PCR, the latest version of the correct verification report must be filled in and signed by the verifier.
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.
To support the development and registration of EPDs based on this PCR, the WBCSD Cement Sustainability Initiative has developed a pre-verified calculation tool. (http://www.wbcsdcement.org/PCR). The pre-verification of this tool in the International EPD® System implies that some parts of the verifications are already taken care of, such as the check of data quality for background data. There is still a need for verification according to the process to develop EPDs, but the time needed for verification is reduced. The tool is currently available to WBCSD-CSI members.
