Plastica Seconda Vita

This certification helps boost the quality of recycled plastic and guarantee its traceability.

Seconda vita

The Istituto per la Promozione delle Plastiche da Riciclo (IPPR), the owner of the Plastica Seconda Vita (PSV) brand, was created based on the initiative of the plastics supply chain (producers, processors, recyclers).

Its main objective is to provide a visibility platform for all manufacturers and distributors of recycled plastic and related products.

IPPR created the PSV brand with the aim of enhancing the quality of recycled plastic and guaranteeing the traceability of recycled materials.

What certification means / What it is for

The work of the PSV brand focuses on materials and products obtained from the recovery of plastic waste from selective collection and other post-consumer streams. It also focuses on materials and products obtained from pre-consumer waste.

PSV certification certifies only traceability and recycled content in accordance with standard ISO 14021.

  • Environmental labels and declarations
  • Self-declared environmental claims (type II environmental labelling).

Depending on the origin and intended use of the certified material or manufactured article, the PSV collective mark mentioned above may be used in conjunction with one of the descriptions indicated below and placed in the position shown.

Benefits of Certification
