To assess the recyclability, technologies and products must be tested following the Recyclability Evaluation Protocols of RecyClass. The testing is performed by independent laboratories, that are accredited by RecyClass to perform the protocols for specific types of packaging (HDPE rigids, PP rigids, PE flexibles). The laboratories take charge of the samples to be tested and finally provide a complete and comprehensible report of the results to the applicant and RecyClass. Additional protocols are currently under development.
Please find below the list of the accredited laboratories, classified by type of packaging. If you would like to get in touch with the laboratories, please contact us.
