Product Category Rules for Interior Architectural Wood Door Leaves
The NADC, in cooperation with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) as the program operator, has completed the development of ISO-compliant Product Category Rules (PCR) for interior architectural wood flush and stile and rail door leaves.
This PCR document specifies rules, requirements, and guidelines for developing EPDs for interior architectural wood door leaves and underlying requirements of related life-cycle- assessments (LCAs). These PCR are valid for, and provide requirements for, Business-to-Business (BtoB) EPDs. The product group includes interior flush door leaves compliant with the ANSI/WDMA I.S. 1A Interior Architectural Wood Flush Doors and interior wood stile and rail door leaves compliant with ANSI/ WDMA I.S. 6A Interior Architectural Stile and Rails Doors, for use in commercial buildings.
