A critical review enhances the credibility of an LCA study. PRé has performed and chaired critical reviews for over 20 years.
PRé’s critical review process ensures that:
- the data used is appropriate
- the methods are scientifically valid and consistent with the standard selected
- the interpretation is comprehensive and meets the goals of the study
- the study is transparent
Independent third party review is recommended for external communication purposes. A panel critical review (two or more reviewers) is required for comparative studies whereas an expert review is sufficient for a single product assessment.
