c-PCR-008 Lifts (elevators)

PCR information

This document provides complementary product category rules (c-PCR) to PCR 2019:14 Construction products. This document cannot be used by itself but shall be used together with PCR 2019:14 and the European standard EN 15804:2012+A2:2019 (called EN 15804 for short), for the applicable product category. The c-PCR has replaced the expired stand-alone PCR for lifts (PCR 2015:05).

This c-PCR provides category rules for the assessment and declaration of the environmental performance (by means of an EPD) of lifts (elevators), which is a sub-set of UN CPC 4354 Lifts, skip hoists, escalators and moving walkways, which includes many different types of machinery. However, the scope of this PCR is limited to machinery defined as lifts (elevators), since production technologies and functionality are specific. Therefore, the PCR cannot be used for other type of products (e.g. skip hoists, escalators or moving walkways) classified under the same UN CPC 4354.

Lifts covered by this PCR can be designed for transportation of persons or freights (goods and materials), or both and can have vertical or inclined trajectories. Lift systems consist of subsystems and components, which may be grouped differently depending on the product structure definition, applied by the respective company (lift manufacturer).

This c-PCR and PCR 2019:14 are limited to those products that are used as construction products. Products used in other applications are outside of the scope.

More information about the product group can be found in the PCR.
