Introduction and guide to LCA data documentation using the CPM documentation criteria and the ISO/TS 14048 data documentation format

This report describes how to work with documentation of Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data. The documentation is done according to the CPM data documentation criteria and the ISO/TS 14048 data documentation format.

The focus of the report is on LCA applications. Thus the terminology, descriptions and examples are based on LCA applications. It can be also used for other applications where there is a need for handling, reporting and communication of data describing a technical system. The criteria and the ISO/TS 14048 data documentation format can thus be used for a wider range of applications than just LCA, for example, to support environmental product declarations (EPD), environmental management systems (EMS) and environmental reporting.
