French translation:couche hydrofuge (not membrane)
Explanation:
Oops! Sorry. I now realise that membrane hydrofuge is the translation for "D.P.M." and not for "D.P.C." Please, ignore and just consider "couche hydrofuge".

couche hydrofuge ou membrane hydrofuge (selon le cas)


Explanation:
D.P.C. is "damp proof course" and I would translate it as couche hydrofuge. Here is a quote from a website: "Plans should show a stepped, damp proof course (DPC) which is essential above and below
the Winblok panel for cavity, and bagged and tarred, inner skin walls." Hope it helps.
