Participate in PCR Development

In all PCR development steps, we not only depend on individuals and organisations that have LCA and project management expert skills, we also highly depend on market/industry experts. The PCR moderators warmly invite you to share your expertise when creating and shaping our future PCRs.

To get involved, please contact the Secretariat for guidance.
