PCR review and approval
This current version of this PCR (v 2.02) will expire in December 2014 and the update procedure has therefore been initiated. Version 2.02 is valid to register EPDs in the meantime. Please contact the PCR Moderator to get involved in the work. All dates are preliminary.
This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of UN CPC 171 Electrical energy and CPC 173 Steam and hot water and the declaration of this performance by an EPD.
Any comments to this PCR document may be given on the PCR Forum or directly to the PCR moderator during the period of validity.
This PCR replaced PCR 2004:02 Electricity and district heating generation.
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.
Please note that all EPDs registered after 2014-05-31 shall be compliant with the latest version (2.01) of the General Programme Instructions of the International EPD® System. This PCR was developed before version 2.01 was published and may thus not be fully compliant. In case of any contradictions between the PCR and the latest programme instructions, please contact the Secretariat at email@example.com.
