This standard establishes guidelines on traceability and recycled material content in products


Under standard UNE-EN 15343:2008, certification schemes are described that must be accredited. It is applicable throughout the plastics value chain, from recyclers to end-product convertors.

Through certification under the standard, companies guarantee that they comply with the requirements of the legislation with regard to traceability and recycled content.

  • It increases the transparency of the European plastics industry, ensures traceability of recycled material from the source and verifies the percentage of recycled plastic included in the product.
  • It provides the exact recycled content (pre-consumer and post-consumer) of your recycled plastics.
