Abstract: This document provides additional guidance, in addition to the ILCD entry-level requirements (JRC 2012), in order to develop process data sets, compliant with the Environmental Footprint (EF) requirements. EF compliant Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data sets shall be compliant with: • EF ELEMENTARY flows: the nomenclature shall be aligned with the most recent version of the EF reference package available on the EF developer’s page at the following link http://eplca.jrc.ec.europa.eu/LCDN/developerEF.xhtml. Details to fulfil this aspect are available in the “ILCD Handbook – Nomenclature and other conventions” (JRC 2010a) • For the PROCESS data sets and PRODUCT flow, the nomenclature shall be compliant with “ILCD Handbook – Nomenclature and other conventions” (JRC 2010a) This document provides further details on more specific aspects and procedures related to EF compliant data sets, and is divided in five sections: 1. The definition of the different process data set types allowed in the ILCD Format. 2. The procedure for EF data sets and data stocks updates, describing how to update and document changes in the future releases of EF data sets, replacing older versions with new ones. 3. Harmonization of level – 1 disaggregated data sets, including the intended level of disaggregation for the EF requirements, and the additional documentation needed. 4. Requirements for meta-data information of EF data sets, describing where and how to include the documentation information to fulfil the EF requirements. 5. Reviewer’s requirements and review report, including the minimum level of expertise for a reviewer (or a team), in order to be eligible for the EF data set’s review, and the review report template, with explanations on how to fill in the different fields.
