Insulation materials

System boundaries

Dear Madam or Sir,
I am writing for asking a clarification relating the modules on which the EDP for insulation materials could be based.
In the PCR for insulation materials (2014:13) in the chapter titled “General system boundaries” (page 6) is written that the EDP shall be based on information modules A1- A4 plus C2- C4 (Cradle to gate with options). Meanwhile in the EN 15804 the same system boundaries is based on the modules A1, A2 and A3 plus C1-C4. At the same time, I do not understand if EDP for insulation materials based on modules A1-A3 (Cradle to gate) would be accepted.
Kind regards,

Dear Martina,

I would recommend that you use the most specific PCR for the product you are investigating (in this case 2014:13).

Kind regards,
Kristian Jelse, EPD International Secretariat
