To secure a smooth transition to the EN 15804+A2 published in 2019, EPD® System decided to extend the validity period for PCR 2012:01 based on EN 15804+A1 until the end of 2021.
Extend validity period for PCR 2012:01 based on EN 15804+A1
On September 21, 2020, EPD International AB decided to extend the validity period for the PCR 2012:01 until 2021-12-31. This PCR is for Construction products and construction services. The validity period of all associated sub-PCRs that follow the old version of EN 15804 (EN 15804:2012+A1:2013) is also extended. This to secure the smooth transition to the new version of EN 15804 (EN 15804:2012+A2:2019).
The validity period of EPD® System based on PCRs that follow the old EN 15804 (A1) remains five years.
New PCR 2019:14 based on EN 15804+A2
However, EPD International AB strongly recommend organisations registering new EPDs to follow the new construction product PCR (PCR 2019:14) and associated complementary PCRs (c-PCRs) that follow the updated EN 15804 standard. A summary of the main differences between the two versions has been published on environdec website.
With the EIME software, you can now carry out environmental assessments according to the new version of EN 15804. A new set of indicators is already available.
