Our independent audit system will assess the exact percentage of recyclates and proove that your processes content demonstrably comply with the specifications of the flustix – DIN CERTCO certification program. flustix enables companies to credibly promote their responsible products by providing objective support for product advertising with its certification mark.
Unlike the flustix PLASTIC FREE certification, the RECYCLED label is based on an on-site audit of the production chain (see flow chart). The focus of this certification is the evaluation of a traceble system and thus the calculation of the recycled content in the final product. Through the assessment, our independent audit partner DIN CERTCO determines the percentage use of post and pre-consumer recyclates in products.
If the test is positive, the corresponding recycled content is added to the flustix RECYCLED mark. A product unit within the meaning of the certification program refers to a product of the same type and quality produced in a comparable identical production process, of identical design with the same, percentage, material composition and the resulting, same proportion of recyclate. For products with several components, flustix complies with the specifications of DIN CERTCO and their system of declaration of the proportion of reclaimed chalk according to the “Certification program for products made of recycled material according to DIN EN ISO 14021, DIN EN 15343, as of January 2019″ and the general terms and conditions of DIN CERTCO.
Assessment and use of recyclates
The initial testing takes the form of an on-site audit at companies responsible for key production stages. The manufacturing processes to be taken into consideration are determined by the origin and type of waste (see flow chart).
Following a positive assessment, customers receive a certificate that is valid for 5 years. Annual verification tests are also conducted as on-site audits. These are designed to confirm that the process is still being followed correctly and that the determination of recycled content and product labelling continue to meet the certification scheme requirements.
