This declaration is an environmental product declaration (EPD) in accordance with ISO 14025. The Tile Council of North America (TCNA) has produced an environmental product declaration (EPD) to identify the various environmental impacts of ceramic tile over its life cycle. In addition to providing basic product definition and information about the basic material, the EPD identifies the origin of ceramic tile and lists building physics. The declaration also includes a description of the tile manufacturing process, indicates the steps of processing the material, explains in-use conditions, and offers life cycle assessment results and results from testing and verifications with respect to tile.
