Make sure that decommissioning (disassembly) is included.
According to EN15804, module D (effects on secondary lifecycles, “avoided production of energy and materials”) shall be included. Make sure that the avoided processes are downgraded adequately to be representative for a secondary life of the component or material, and not based on the primary life.
Clarify if “production mix” or “consumption mix” shall be used to represent electricity per region. Also, please specify the requirements of the data. Generic databases such as ecoinvent are often used in EPD. But national Energy Departments such as NVE-RME (https://www.nve.no/norwegian-energy-regulatory-authority/retail-market/electricity-disclosure-2018/) has additional data that “shall” be used.
