EPD workshop added to ASTM C09 meetings

“An Introduction to Product Category Rules (PCR), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and Other Aspects of Sustainable Process and Resilient Materials” will be held December 8 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville (Fla.) Riverfront, the host venue of ASTM International Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates standards development meetings.

ASTM recently became a Program Operator to verify EPD, following a similar move by National Ready Mixed Concrete Association earlier this year, aimed at assisting producer members certify their own documents. Online registration will open approximately eight weeks before the workshop. Registration and additional information will be available at www.astm.org/ C09Wrkshp12-13.
