PCR information

This PCR has expired, why an update has been initiated. A draft wasavailable for open consultation until 2018-10-31. The PCR moderator and PCR committee will now update the draft and respond to stakeholder feedback. The final draft will be reviewed before publiction. Dates are preliminary.


This PCR is applicable to substantial products used for the realization of air ducts for ventilation and air-conditioning of buildings for human occupancy.

Since the duct geometry can vary according to specific conditions (i.e. room dimensions, air speed and pressure, main or secondary branches) and it is not directly related to the function, this PCR adopt a modular approach taking into account the unit surface of the substantial materials to be differently used to generate the duct surface area by, for example, cutting, bending and joining. In this group could be included substantial products used for:

  • Sheet metal air ducts : insulated metal air ducts and not insulated metal air ducts
  • Air ducts made from insulated ductboards with metallic/non metallic facings
  • Flexible ducts

In this group cannot be included: substantial products used for particular applications such as ducts for smoke extraction and fire resistant ducts.

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.

Please note that this PCR and EPDs based on it are NOT compliant with the European standard EN 15804 (Sustainability of construction works - Environmental product declarations - Core rules for the product category of construction products).
