European laminate flooring producers are going ‘on the offensive’ to prove the sustainability of their products.
The European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) association has been involved in an EU project to develop rules and standards on assessing the sustainability of flooring.
The rules and standards, known as Product Category Rules (PCR), have been published on the website of the German Institute of Building and Environment at
PCRs contain the regulations for
creating an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which describes the life cycle of a product, from manufacture through its use and to disposal.
