The first edition of the Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) of PPA-Europe (for steel faced sandwich panels with a core made of MW, for steel faced sandwich panels with a core made of PUR and for profiled sheets made of steel) will expire in 2018. The work to revise them has already started. Besides of these, PPA-Europe has taken over from the IFBS association the EPD for profiled sheets made of aluminium and will also take care of its revision.
