Certification

RecyClass offers different types of reports depending on the user needs. A simple report can be used internally to improve the recyclability of the packaging or it can also be officially certified and used as a marketing tool. A description of all available options is provided below.

1.RecyClass self-analysis: Anyone can run their own Recyclass analysis via the online tool. A “RecyClass report” will be issued to download at the end of the online analysis.

2.RecyClass report expert-checked: After running a Recyclass analysis, on specific request from the user an expert of Recyclass will check it and give a more personalised feedback. This report will not represent an official certification of any kind and it can only be used for internal purposes.

3.RecyClass Official Certification: The analysis on the packaging will be conducted by an external auditor who will verify the result. An official certification will be issued and this will allow the RecyClass label to be displayed on the packaging. The RecyClass label can be displayed in the package as a marketing claim for consumers aware of the recycling importance.
