|The International Reference Life Cycle Data Systems (ILCD) Handbook|
The ILCD Handbook is a series of technical guidance documents that provide practice-oriented guidance for good Life Cycle assessment (LCA) practice. The ILCD Handbook aims to support methodologically consistent and quality-assured Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) and Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) data sets for robust and reliable LCA studies and applications on a global basis. The ILCD has been developed in a broad and iterative international stakeholder process.
The ILCD series of technical guidance documents for LCA has been developed to support LCA practitioners in the planning, performance and documentation of complete and detailed LCAs. The recommendations given in the handbooks are inline with the requirements of ISO 14040 and 14044.
The following guidance documents are available online from the European Commission Joint Research Centre:
