Construction Products and CEN TC 350 Standards
An update on how BRE Global is responding to CEN TC350 on the environmental assessment of construction products
A suite of new European Standards is being developed for assessing the sustainability of construction products and the built environment, by the CEN Technical Committee for the sustainability of construction works (CEN TC 350).
EN 15804 provides the core set of Product Category Rules for the Europe-wide generation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for construction products. EPD are an important source of published information on the environmental impacts of individual construction materials.
BRE Global's EPD scheme (‘Environmental Profiles') and Green Guide ratings are currently widely used to demonstrate and compare the lifecycle environmental performance of construction products in the UK.
This page provides information on how BRE Global is responding to the Standards emerging from CEN TC350.
