PCR Documents

Information used in an EPD is based on a life-cycle assessment (LCA) methodology following certain product-specific requirements and boundaries, referred to as Product Category Rules (PCRs). These are the rules a product must follow to develop and publish and EPD in order to create a transparent, credible report.


NAPA and a group of industry experts developed a PCR for asphalt mixtures in 2017. Members of the public submitted comments on the PCR during the public review period.
