Recycled Content | Recyclability

The activities of the cross-industry RecyClass - Institution include on the one hand the development of procedures for evaluating the recyclability of innovative and especially secondary raw materials; as well as the Europe-wide harmonization of validation processes for certifying the recycled content of packaging materials in the circular economy.


Recyclability
RecyClass evaluates and classifies the recyclability of plastic packaging and thus provides targeted impulses for improving packaging designs. This is also contrasted with the current recycling technologies.

Recycled Content
RecyClass has developed a validation procedure to assess and calculate the recycled content in plastic packaging. This verification scheme is mapped by the RecyClass committee in accordance with the European standard ISO 22095 and EN 15343 for the traceability of recycled content.Across the entire value chain of plastic applications, traceability criteria of a material or product throughout the supply chain and processes, via its inputs and outputs, and related information within these relevant supply chains are certifiable through a reproducible verification process.

Manufacturers and distributors of plastic packaging can thus meet the increasingly conscious consumer demand for greater sustainability by using RecyClass certification to obtain a transparent and reproducible assessment of the recyclability or secondary raw material content of their products, which is in line with the technological status of European plastics recyclers. Recyclable packaging can thus be identified for consumers.

We offer for your company:

  • Certification of recycled content according to RecyClass
  • Certification in combination with RAL UZ 30a

Initial certification (initial assessment) takes a longer time frame. Depending on the type and size of the plant, one to two days may be required. After a successful initial certification, an annual surveillance follows to prove the ongoing conformity.

In combinations with other standards, e.g. ISO 14001, EMAS or ISO 9001, individual elements of the relevant standard can be adapted.


Accredited certification bodies
Accredited certification bodies are published on the RecyClass Initiative website. These bodies assess and certify the recyclability or secondary raw material content of plastic packaging according to the Recyclass assessment procedures.
