PCR 2012:01 Construction products and construction services (EN 15804:A1)

Basic module

PCR information

This PCR refers to the current version of the standard EN 15804:A1. A new version is expected in 2019, why a new PCR is under development. Both PCRs are expected to be available in parallel for a time to enable EPD owners and EPD users to adapt to the new standard.

 

This document serves as Product Category Rules (PCR) for Construction products and Construction services. It aims to be the main way to develop and register EPDs in the International EPD System, compliant with the European standard EN 15804:2012+A1:2013 (Sustainability of construction works - Environmental product declarations - Core rules for the product category of construction products).

In addition, this document may also be the basis for development of "sub-PCRs" for more specific product categories.

  • If this document is used as a PCR, it may be used for Construction products and construction services for an EPD based on a declared unit, cradle-to-gate or cradle-to-gate with options;
  • If this document is used together with a sub-PCR, it may be used for an EPD based on a functional unit, cradle-to-grave.

The following sub-PCRs currently exist, and shall be used in addition to this document for the relevant product categories:

  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-A Mortars applied to a surface
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-B Synthetic carpet yarn
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-C Acoustical systems solutions (previously: Acoustic ceilings)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-D Bricks, blocks, tiles, flagstone of clay and siliceous earths
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-E Wood and wood-based products for use in construction (EN 16485)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-F Resilient, textile and laminate floor coverings (EN 16810)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-G Concrete and concrete elements (EN 16757)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-H Cement and building limes (EN 16908)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-I Thermal insulation products (EN 16783)
  • PCR 2012:01-Sub-PCR-J Instant boiling and chilled drinking water dispensers (permanently installed)
  • PCR 2012:01 Sub-PCR-K Rehabilitation Services of highways, streets and roads
  • PCR 2012:01 Sub-PCR-L Ceramic tiles

Additional sub-PCRs are currently under development.
