This product category rules (PCR) document is intended to provide guidelines for conducting life cycle assessments (LCAs) and preparing environmental product declarations (EPDs) for corrugated products (including but not limited to corrugated boxes) manufactured in North America (see section 5 for
definition of product category). The users of this PCR will be manufacturers of North American corrugated products and other interested parties. This PCR has been developed under the general
program instructions for the FPInnovations’ EPD Program issued March 2013. The PCR presents a structure that is intended to ensure a harmonious approach is taken to derive, verify and present EPDs for corrugated products produced in North America.
