    Abstract

    This document describes common methodological issues for the case studies within LC-IMPACT. There will be five case studies in three areas performed within the project. The case studies are: Tomatoes, Margarine, Fish, Paper and printing and finally car manufacture and operation. In each case study several LCIA methods developed in other parts of LC-IMPACT will be applied and evaluated, but established LCIA methods will also be used and the studies shall be ILCD compliant. All case studies will follow the ILCD Handbook and this report describes common methodological choices needed and describes how data inventory is to be done and how deviations from the stated goals shall be managed and reported. A description of the external review is also presented.
