This document provides product category rules (PCR) for Type III environmental product declarations (EPD) as described in EN ISO 14025 and EN 15942 for "plastics piping systems" intended for hot and cold pressure, cold pressure, and soil and waste non-pressure applications inside buildings.
This PCR covers the entire life cycle from cradle to grave.
NOTE The PCR will be applied to all products covered by CEN/TC 155 in this application. A list of product standards is provided in Annex D.
This document specifies the rules for the product category of construction products as defined in and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 15804.
In addition to the common parts of EN 15804, this document for European plastics piping systems inside building defines:
- the functional unit;
- the system boundaries;
- the elements and conditions of installations;
- the transport scenarios for both the raw materials and complete systems;
- the reference service life (RSL);
- end of life scenarios.
