ArcelorMittal releases first PCDS

The leading steel and mining company ArcelorMittal today released the first Circular Economy standardized fingerprint for products in the steel and mining industry, using the Product Circularity Data Sheet (PCDS).

ArcelorMittal chose its best-selling iQ⁺ System® range to pilot the PCDS. For the first time, users of steel sandwich products have a clear and easy-to-use dataset showing circular attributes like design for disassembly, recyclability, recycled content, and design for circular use.

ISO59040: call for experts

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is about to start drafting the future international standard ISO 59040 “Product Circularity Data Sheet” (PCDS), through its technical committee ISO/TC 323 “Circular Economy”. A new ISO/TC 323/WG 5 working group, led by Mr. Jérôme Petry (Ministry of the Economy), has recently been created to develop this project. In this context, a call is launched to any expert who would like to get involved in the development process of this international standard.

Initiated by the Ministry of Economy, and with the support of major industry players at the international level, the PCSD aims to enable the communication of data on product circularity in an environment of trust. The future international standard will provide a methodology and format for communicating and exchanging information on circular economy aspects of products along the supply chain, while providing a framework for verifying the reliability of the data transmitted.

Would you like to contribute to the project and share your experience in the field of circular economy? ISO/TC 323/WG 5 will organize its first (virtual) international meeting in July 2021, to provide more detailed information on the work done so far.

Any national expert interested in participating in the working group and in the development process of this new standard can now apply for registration at his national standardization body.
