Re: Period of validity
How to handle this requirement was unclear in version 2.01 of the General Programme Instructions. In the updated version, this has been clarified:
The maximum validity of an EPD is set for each product category in the PCR, and shall not exceed three years after
which the declaration must necessarily be revised and reissued. For construction product EPDs compliant with
EN 15804, a validity of five years as described in Section 9 (“Verification and validity of the EPD”) shall be applied.
I expect all EN 15804-compliant PCRs to take this into account when being updated.
