DOWNSTREAM PROCESSES AND END OF LIFE

by: Luca Sordi (sordi) 31 July 2013, 8:59:01 AM (GMT +1)

We think that END OF LIFE of  the product should be compulsory.
In our opinion, it is important to give an information about the end of life of the product in this PCR because it represents the “final link of the PCR chain  (see comment PCR and product chain)”. 
So, we suggest you to include the END OF LIFE using, if specific scenario information are not available, some documented general scenario according to regional/national/international data.

In most PCR the end of life is not included. The lifecycle of these products is estimated to be over 20 years, then is impossible to assume a quantitative end of life. Only qualitative information about product end of life will be reported.
