Machines for filling and packaging of liquid food

PCR information

This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the life-cycle environmental performance of a sub-set of UN CPC 43291 as well as for the declaration of such performance by an Environmental Product Declaration.

UN CPC 43921 includes many different types of machinery. The scope of this PCR is limited to machinery related to packaging of liquid food products since requirements on hygiene and functionality are very specific for filling and packaging machines handling liquid food.

This PCR covers the following types of machines which are part of CPC 439211:

  • machinery for filling, closing, sealing, capsuling or labelling bottles, cans, boxes, bags or other containers for liquid
    food;
  • other packing or wrapping machinery used in liquid food filling lines
