PCR development process
A Product Category Rule (PCR) is openly and collaboratively developed with multiple interested parties (Stakeholders) to ensure the integrity and transparency of the resulting EPDs.
EPDIndia is responsible for developing and publishing PCRs for a Product Category, or identifying an existing PCR to be used in the development of the EPD. Under International Standards, an existing PCR can be adopted as it is or modified to reflect product or regional specifics.http://www.epdindia.in/

The classification can be used to identify the product groups for which PCRs are arranged and to define, in a systematic way, the PCR documents within the EPDIndia Programme.
