Product Category Rule Development

BIFMA is actively creating product category rules (PCRs) for the furniture industry through an open development process engaging stakeholders from around the globe. These are the rules by which life cycle assessments (LCAs) should be performed in the office furniture industry and the resultant LCAs can be used to create environmental product declarations (EPDs) for publication and sharing with customers.

Additional members of the committee are being sought to participate in this important work. Let us know if you are interested by contacting Brad Miller ( for additional information.

Disclaimer: Environmental product declarations made from different product manufacturers may not be directly comparable.  Specific studies conducted on a product or group of products by the manufacturer are not intended to make comparative assertions against another manufacturer(s) product(s).  The results presented in an EPD are made by a specific manufacturer in compliance with the guiding Product Category Rules (PCR), and reflect the specific data sources, data quality and potential additional product attributes for that product only.  These results and assumptions may not align with another manufacturer’s study to a degree that would support direct comparisons.   When reviewing results presented in an EPD, it is of utmost importance to fully review the attributes, assumptions and data used in the study; thus allowing for a clearer understanding of the results and how one manufacturer’s study may not be directly comparable to another’s study even for a similar product.
