Our project team is currently pursuing this credit and was able to achieve it through door hardware manufacturers such as Sargent, McKinney, Norton, Pemko and CECO since they had the most robust documentation available (from what we could find). We couldn't find any information for this credit on other users attempting it and unfortunately we didn't have time to wait for answers from LEEDcoach so we were working solely off of the credit description.
Are there other teams out there that were able to find other products outside of door hardware that met the criteria?

Our Team is also pursuing this credit. I am right there with you in the search for compliant products that align with our project scope and have found the Zero Waste and Closed Loop Certified to be the most viable criteria at the moment. We have not submitted for review but I also plan to use various Ceco Door products as well as Interface Glasbac/ GlasbacRE carpet tile(s) to achieve the Credit. The Interface product(s) are Green Circle "Closed Loop Certified" - which is not well publicized. You can access the info & GreenCircle Label here if it is useful to your project (please note - it is only the GlasbacRE and not (standard) Glasbac: https://www.interface.com/US/en-US/sustainability/product-transparency/G...
I can also offer some things with respect to "Designed for Cicularity" that I think could be close and might be being further developed (which might pan out in the future). I think the major sticking point is the intent for product design that intends for component re-use instead or re-absorbing procuct into a recycling program:
Very interested if you have other feedback.

I'm looking at the viability of pursuing this Pilot credit on a project currently and I'm curious if your pursuit was successful. I am looking at multiple flooring products and focusing on products that have the Cradle to Cradle v3 Gold certification in the Materials Reutilization category. Do you have any lessons learned you could share on this? It seems like a relatively easy credit to pursue if you already have a variety of Cradle to Cradle products being used on the project.

@Amber Morris - PC Circular Products requires to use at least 5 permanently installed products from 3 manufacturers. All the mentioned door hardware manufacturers such as Sargent, McKinney, Norton, Pemko and CECO are brands under ASSA ABLOY, which makes 1 manufacturer. Did you achieve this pilot credit? Could you share your learning? Thanks!
