Product Category Rules (PCR) for Type III Environmental Product Declaration of Construction Products to EN15804:2012
This is a Product Category Rule (PCR) document for the assessment of the environmental performance of construction products. It describes BRE's methodology for creating an EPD for any construction product or service.
The advantage of a single PCR document covering all constriction products is that it enables all sectors to readily see how all materials are assessed at a product level. As there is currently no such PCR existing, BRE has created a new PCR to fulfil this purpose.
This PCR document has been prepared to be in line with the requirements of EN 15804:2012, Sustainability of construction works - Environmental product declarations - Core rules for the product category of construction products.
The methodology underpinning the EPD has therefore also been prepared to be in the conformity with the relevant ISO standards for Type III environmental declaration, ISO 14025:2010 and ISO 21930:2007, and the standards relating to environmental management using life cycle assessment, ISO 14040:2006 and 14044:2006.
