The certification is based on the requirements of DIN EN ISO 14021 and DIN EN 15343 in conjunction with other requirements of the certification program. End products, semi-finished products and recyclates themselves can all be certified. The certification partner is DIN Certco (TÜV Rheinland).
The DIN Tested mark is also integrated into the seal. Licensees can use the seal to credibly demonstrate the authenticity and percentage of recyclates used, as well as communicate this to the outside world. In addition, both PCR (post consumer recyclate), PIR (post industrial recyclate) and the mix of both types of recyclate are made recognizable on the label. This ensures absolute transparency for both retailers and consumers when purchasing.
