It is insufficient to only include internal storage in information module A3 manufacturing.
Background: The term "manufacturing" is not explicitly defined in EN15804 and there is a need to clarify minimum content. This decision is relevant for products where there is storage before the product reaches the factory gate.

It is a requirement that 0 shall only be used for results that are calculated to be zero. Rounding to two decimal places shall not be used if this leads to no significant digits being reported, as this can be misinterpreted as a calculated zero value.
0.00 shall only be used for values that are calculated to be zero. For small values scientific notation should be used.
A previous decision has made it possible to create EPDs with EN 15804 as the only PCR, as long as the EPD did not extend beyond modules A1-A5. The purpose was to allow for the creation of EPDs (declared unit) where there was no existing PCR. After the introduction of the new PCR structur with a PCR Part A and PCR Part B, this decision needed updating.
When developing EPD for a construction product, PCR part A shall allways be used. If there is no PCR part B available from EPD Norway an EPD can be made based on PCR part A only. When there is a PCR part B available for the product, this shall be applied.
- This replaces decision 08/2015
- PCR from programme operators that have a mutual recognition agreement with EPD Norway may be used.
