A joint presentation by Mike Levy of First Environment (Vice-chair, US TAG to the International Organization for Standardization/ISO TC 323 Circular Economy, and US Expert for ISO TC 207 on Life-Cycle Assessment) and Keith Kline (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) will provide an overview of the scope and current status of ISO standards development activity on circular economy:  

  • ISO 59004 Framework and principles for implementation (including terms and definitions);  
  • ISO 59010 Guidelines on business models and value chains; 
  • ISO 59020 Measuring and Assessing Circularity; 
  • ISO 59040 Circularity Product Data Sheet; and

Related standards, complementary methods, and some of the issues ISO TC 323 has grappled with in the process, will be noted. The activities of the US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for TC323 will be described, along with information on how people can join and engage in the standards drafting process. Time will be allowed for Q&A and discussion with the audience.
