New Standards:

NSF is beginning development of a NEW Product Category Rule (PCR) for architectural coatings. Product Category Rules define the parameters of a life cycle assessment (LCA) for a particular product group and define the resulting Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

 

If you are interested in participating on this PCR committee, please contact Ms. Jessica Slomka, Manager of the architectural coating PCR committee at jslomka@nsf.org or 734-214-6219.
