Speaker to Discuss Product Category Rules at AAMA Summer Conference

During the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) Summer Conference, to be held in Rosemont, Ill., June 9-12, Dr.

Tom Gloria, managing director of Industrial Ecology Consultants, will present information on conducting product life cycle assessments (LCAs) and developing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) using the Product Category Rules (PCR) guidance document, which is scheduled to be completed by fall 2013.   

Registration for the Summer Conference ends May 31. “Gloria’s presentation is especially timely considering quantitative and verified information on the environmental and health impacts of consumer products is increasingly being sought in both the U.S. and international markets,” says Rich Walker, AAMA's president and CEO. “When finalized, the PCR document will offer manufacturers the tools needed to provide comprehensive, product-specific Environmental Product Declarations to their customers.” The PCR document is a response to a widely recognized need for a single ANSI-approved resource to use in developing industry recognized and uniform, comparative EPDs and substantive LCAs.
