If a seat is sold without the textile required before use, can the textile be excluded from the EPD?

Thanks for your question.

Depends on whether the functional unit required according to the PCR for seats, PCR 2009:02, can be fulfilled without the textile. The functional unit is “one unit of furniture maintained during its life time”. If this cannot be fulfilled with the product without textile, the textile has to be included.

Best regards,
Gustav Sandin, Project manager PCR and methodology, the Secretariat of the International EPD System
