EuCertPlast and RecyClass have reached an agreement for the future development of the certification for plastics recyclers. Going forward the expertise and know-how of the two audit schemes will be combined under the RecyClass Recycling ProcessCertification.
Given the rising legislative requirements on the use of recycled materials and their traceability, the two audit schemes have the right basis to facilitate compliance for recyclers looking for a reliable certification.
To ensure a smooth changeover for all the EuCertPlast-certified companies, RecyClass will establish clear transition measures and will announce the relevant transition period. These measures will address the validity period of existing EuCertPlast certificates as well as will outline the process for future audits.
EuCertPlast visual identity and name will be maintained in communication and branding activities, given its well-established reputation within the plastics industry.
This agreement between RecyClass and EuCertPlast will translate into increased transparency within the plastics recycling industry and thereby build trust in the recycling claims.
