Textile manufacturing services, non-apparel fabrics made of natural fibres other than cotton

PCR information

This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of textile manufacturing services of fabrics made of natural fibres other than cotton, for other uses than apparel, corresponding to a subset of UN CPC 8821 (Textile manufacturing services), as well as fabrics made of natural fibres other than cotton, for other uses than apparel, corresponding to UN CPC 265 (Woven fabrics of natural fibres other than cotton), a subset of UN CPC 281 (Knitted or crocheted fabrics), and a subset of UN CPC 27922 (Nonwovens).

The PCR is intended to cover manufacturing of (in the form of services or products) woven, knitted, crocheted or nonwoven fabrics from natural fibres other than cotton (only or mixed with others, being natural fibres majority) for other uses than apparel, for example, agriculture and fisheries; carpeting, furnishing, upholstery, window shades, table covers; applications for automobiles, ships, trains; etc. In the case of manufacturing services, the output is not owned by the company providing this service.

In order to avoid overlaps, if, in the International EPD® System, specific PCRs exist for products covered by this PCR, the specific PCR shall prevail over this PCR. For example, the development of a general PCR on fabrics will be developed – when this has been published, it will replace the part of the scope of the present PCR which concerns the good (i.e., woven, knitted, crocheted or nonwoven fabrics from natural other than cotton) and the PCR will thereafter be limited to the manufacturing service of producing the good.
