PCR information

This document provides Product Category Rules (PCR) for the assessment of the environmental performance of parts and accessories of computing machines (e.g. laser printer cartridges) corresponding to UN CPC 45290 and the declaration of this performance by an EPD®.

A computing machine is a machine for performing calculations automatically (e.g. computer and computer devices such as a printer). Its parts and accessories help the machines to their function (such as: monitor, keyboard, cartridge for printers, etc.). It is possible that parts or accessories are remanufactured from original ones that have already been used (for example toner cartridges). This PCR covers also remanufactured components of the computing machines.

This PCR document is publically available on www.environdec.com. The PCR document is 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.

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.
