Recycled Plastic Rating
What we need from you
The Chain of custody documentation for each SKU or range of SKUs is as follows:
Business registration (1-3)
RPR Audit (4)
Brands will provide proof (by means of purchase orders) showing that they have bought Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) material from trusted recyclers.
There will be a warranty attached from the company director confirming the percentage of PCR used in each packaging component.
A mass balance calculation will then determine the total percentage of PCR in the packaging.
RPR Audit – If all documentation is satisfactory, the RPR will be audited by a third party and then issued for the company to use on its packaging and marketing collateral.
We anticipate with the full registration, verification and certification process it could cost between £2k – £5k*, depending on the verification complexity, and the number of proposed SKUs.
* Infringement and the misuse of the RPR trademark, logo or slogan without appropriate permission will be a breach of IP regulation and will incur appropriate penalties
How to calculate RPR
Working out the percentage per SKU
Using government's recommended Mass Balance Logic, each weight of the component is used to calculate the total PCR content.
