ACLCA Assistance for Critical Review

Critical reviews are required for certain kinds of LCAs and LCA-related documents. Those used only for internal decision-making do not require this service. However, LCAs that are the basis of market claims should be reviewed by a panel of three experts. This is also needed for the review of product category rules.

Advice on PCR review team composition can be found in the Draft PCR Operator guide

ACLCA can assist in critical review by:

  • Chairing the critical review committee
  • Providing members of the critical review committee
  • Providing advice on how to structure and fill the critical review committee
  • finding outside experts that can assist in the review

The cost of these services depend on the project. Organizational members receive reduced fees on these services.
