Abstract: Authors: Fazio S., Pennington D. 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. Recently a new tool has been added to the Resource Directory, i.e. the Reviewer Registry, would provide a list of qualified (i.e. with different levels of compliance for Life Cycle based methods) reviewers from different countries/sectors. The Reviewer Registry is a tool designed to provide information about reviewers concerning their expertise, knowledge and other relevant info. It helps the users to identify potential appropriate reviewers for their LCA studies. Based on the info provided, the tool assigns a score (now based on International reference Life Cycle Data system (ILCD) handbook, and Environmental Footprint (EF) requirements). INFO PROVIDED: languages spoken, countries covered, Career info, education, list of employers, years of experience, number of reviews, Accreditation as third party reviewer, Attended courses, Review practice chair, Review practice trainer, sectors of work experience and years, etc. a searching tool has been also implemented, allowing the users to run specific queries, basing on the above mentioned meta-data.
