PCR information

There is an ongoing initiative to develop a combined PCR of Preserved and preserved vegetable and fruit products, including juice (UN CPC 213 and 214). When ready, this PCR may be replaced by the new PCR. For further information please contact the Secretariat or the PCR moderator.

 

This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of UN CPC 2132 (Vegetable juices) and 2139 (Other prepared and preserved vegetables, pulses and potatoes) and the declaration of this performance by an EPD.

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.

The PCR is intended to be a living document. If relevant changes in the LCA methodology or in the technology for the product category occur, the document will be revised and any changes will be published on the website.

Any comments to this PCR document may be given on the PCR Forum on www.environdec.com or directly to the PCR moderator during the period of validity. The PCR Moderator should initiate a revision process before the validity time expires to give due time for announcing and collecting comments.

EPDs shall be based on the latest version of the PCR, and refer to the version number and date of the PCR used. The production of new PCR versions does not affect the certification period of EPDs that are already published.

This PCR previously had a smaller scope and was called "Vegetable juices and Other prepared and preserved vegetables, pulses and potatoes".

PCR updated 2019-02-25

Version 2.1 of this PCR was published and may now be used to develop and register EPDs for this product category. See the document for a version history.

The new version is compliant with GPI 3.0 and the latest PCR basic modules. Version 2.0 is valid for a transition period of six months until 2019-08-25. Please contact the secretariat for further information.
