PolyCert Europe

Umbrella technical platform for harmonising existing certification schemes for converters of polymeric materials in Europe

ABOUT

The European converters of polymeric material are moving towards a circular economy. With the establishment of the MORE platform registering the use of plastic recyclate in new products, the industry demonstrates its commitment to reach the target of the European Commission of 10 million tonnes of recycled polymers reused annually by 2025 and 2030.

To reinforce this strong commitment, PolyCert Europe was established to facilitate the verification and auditing of the volumes reported into the MORE platform. Such auditing work must by definition be done by a third party auditing system based on a network of accreditation certification bodies and independent auditors to ensure impartiality.

 

The objective of PolyCert Europe is to provide quality certification and verification of recycled content in converted products.

HARMONISING EXISTING CERTIFICATION

PolyCert Europe uses existing certifications for harmonised audits of polymer-based converting industries such as plastics and textiles to stimulate the circular economy.

ENSURING COMPLIANCE & QUALITY

PolyCert Europe helps companies verify compliance with quality standards and ensures that their products live up to customer specifications regardless of whether they use virgin or recycled polymers.

EUROPEAN & NATIONAL REACH

PolyCert Europe brings together national accredited certification bodies from all over Europe to harmonise the calculation of recycled content in new products.

METHODOLOGY & STRUCTURE

The PolyCert Europe technical platform builds on the principles of ISO17065 or ISO17021 and includes chain of custody. The methodology identifies all waste streams and provides a comprehensive way of calculating the recycled content in newly converted products based on the definitions of ISO EN 14021 and ISO EN 472. All schemes under the Polycert Europe umbrella initiative are in accordance with EN 15343:2008 and the declarations on the types of recycled materials are in accordance with ISO 14021.

To learn more about the monitoring of the use of recycled polymeric materials, please visit www.moreplatform.eu. MORE is the unified, digital platform to monitor the use of recycled polymeric materials in the European plastics converting industry. MORE is helping the plastics industry to become more circular by collecting the volumes of recycled polymers that are used by plastics converting companies to create new products, and by stimulating a higher uptake of recycled polymers.
