This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of Fabricated steel products, except construction products, machinery and equipment and the declaration of this performance by an EPD. The corresponding UN CPC codes are 422 (Tanks, reservoirs and containers of iron, steel or aluminium) and UN CPC 429 (Other fabricated metal products). More information about the product group is available in the document.
This PCR replaces the expired PCR for Steel Products (PCR 2002:1) and was developed in parallel to a PCR for Fabricated steel construction products. Both PCR documents would cover the same UN CPC codes, but for different application areas.
The PCR document is a living document. If relevant changes in the LCA methodology or in the technology for the product category occur, the document will be revised and any changes will be published on the website.
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.
