EuCertPlast is a Europe-wide certification program for the recycling of plastic waste. On the one hand, an EuCertPlast certification validates the compliance of the operational standards of plastic recycling processes and their quality levels, and on the other hand confirms to the disposers that all recyclable plastic waste is recycled in an environmentally sound manner and according to the respective legal requirement of the respective EU state.
The certification program focuses on the traceability of plastic materials (throughout the recycling process and the entire supply chain) and on the quality of the recycled content in the final product

A first-time certification, like a waste management certification, takes a longer time frame. Depending on the type of plant and size one to two days will be required for a first assessment. After a successful initial certification, an annual monitoring follows to prove the continuous conformity.
For combinations with other regulations, e.g. EfbV, ISO 14001, EMAS or ISO 9001, individual elements of the respective standard are adaptable.
