Abstract: To support EU environmental policies based on Life Cycle approach, the European Commission launched the “European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment (EPLCA).” The platform aims at providing coherent and quality-assured life cycle data, methods, and studies as well as information about developers and suppliers of LCA dedicated software and databases (DB), and service providers. The LCA Resources Directory (RD), aims to offer a sharing platform for information related to software and database developers/suppliers, and service providers within the LCA community, there is also a repository for studies and documents with specific templates allowing to upload studies on e.g. Product and Organisation Environmental Footprint , Ecodesign, EPD and related Category Rules/Criteria. Further improvements are foreseen for the next future on the RD, in particular the Reviewer Registry, which will provide information on LCA/LCI reviewers (both individuals and teams). The Reviewers will be sortable by sectorial skills and relevance to specific LC-based methods (E.g. Environmental Footprint, ILCD, etc.). The level of experience of the registered reviewers/teams will be displayed, and some information may be also cross linked within the RD, such as publications or reports uploaded by the reviewer or his team on the "Documents and Studies" section. Others improvements are forseen on the existing sections, for instance in the "Dcouments and Studies" section some new templates may be developed according to the needs of other EU institutions, dealing with LCA or LCI datasets, in different sectors. The above mentioned tools are supposed to be integrated also with other tools in the EPLCA forum, that has to be released in 2014.
