This European Standard provides product category rules (PCR) for Type III environmental product declarations, as described in EN ISO 14025 and EN 15942, for “buried plastics piping systems” intended for buried pressure and non-pressure applications outside building structure. This PCR covers the entire life cycle from cradle to grave.This European Standard specifies the rules for the product category of construction products as defined in and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 15804. NOTE 2 For the purposes of this standard, the word “building” is always replaced by “buried plastics piping systems” or “constructions”. The core PCR: (as EN 15804) - defines the parameters to be declared and the way in which they are collated and reported; - describes which stages of a product’s life cycle are considered in the EPD and which processes are to be included in the life cycle stages; - defines rules for the development of scenarios; - includes the rules for calculating the Life Cycle Inventory and the Life Cycle Impact Assessment underlying the EPD, including the specification of the data quality to be applied; - includes the rules for reporting predetermined, environmental and health information, that is not covered by LCA for a product, construction process and construction service where necessary; - defines the conditions under which construction products can be compared based on the information provided by EPD. In addition to the common parts of EN 15804 this European Standard for buried plastics piping systems defines: - the functional unit; - the system boundaries; - the elements of installation; - the transport scenarios for both the raw material and the complete system; - the trench conditions; - reference service life (RSL); - end of life scenarios; - the rules for calculating the Life Cycle Inventory and the Life Cycle Impact Assessment underlying the EPD.
