General Guidelines and PCR and applicable documents

General product category rules apply to all construction products, as do supplementary documents and templates

According to EN 15804:2019+A2

The general guides and product category rules that apply primarily to all building materials are summarised in the Management System Handbook (MS-HB) for the creation of Type III Environmental Product Declarations of Bau EPD GmbH.

These are specifications on quality assurance and verification procedures, general product category rules and general LCA rules for EPDs that go beyond the requirements of applicable legal texts and/or standardisation regulations.

The handbook consists of the core document (MS-HB) and the applicable documents (flow charts, guides, templates including format templates as well as lists).

The most recent version of the documents can be found here, older versions can be found in the archive.
