ASTM International Publishes New Product Category Rules for the Cement Industry

ASTM International has partnered with the Slag Cement Association (SCA) to develop new Product Category Rules (PCR) for slag cement. This PCR establishes the criteria for developing an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for slag cement used in concrete, mortar and other construction applications.

“The Slag Cement Association has long understood the potential environmental benefit of the use of slag cement, a recovered material,” says John Melander, executive director of SCA, and an ASTM member. “This PCR provides a standardized method for developing and disseminating verifiable information about the environmental impact of slag cement.”

ASTM International’s world-renowned document development system uniquely positions us as an ideal venue for the development of PCRs. “In choosing to partner with ASTM International as program operator, SCA recognized ASTM’s long history of development of widely accepted standards for the marketplace,” says Melander.

EPDs are a highly regarded way to demonstrate a company’s commitment to sustainability, quality and responsibility. They show businesses the real environmental impact of your product over the course of its lifetime and help differentiate your product in the marketplace.

Partnering with ASTM is a convenient, credible and cost-effective way to develop PCRs and verify EPDs. ASTM does not charge for the development of a Product Category Rule.
