The International Organization for Standardization subcommittee on life cycle assessment (ISO/TC 207/SC 5) is considering options for making amendments to the ISO14040/44 standards, including an amendment to clarify how to apply 14044 for attributional and consequential LCA, and explanations on the respective application areas for the two modeling approaches. Since SETAC is a liaison to ISO and was instrumental in writing the current text, the SETAC Life Cycle Assessment Coordinating Group has decided to develop a SETAC position paper on this issue, to be initiated at a one-day workshop on 26 November in Barcelona, Spain, the day before the 23rd SETAC Europe LCA Case Studies Symposium.
