Assessment methods are based on the data compiled under the Design for Recycling Guidelines and the findings of Recyclability Evaluation Protocols testing results.
RecyClass Methodology outlines a comprehensive approach for assessing plastic packaging recyclability, in a reliable and standardised manner. Plastic packaging is evaluated and attributed a class on a scale from A to F.
The Methodology provides comprehensive information on the assessment methods used to assess and certify the recyclability of a plastic package. It describes the approach towards obtaining Design for Recycling Certification, Recyclability Rate Certification, and Letters of Compatibility.
In addition, RecyClass developed the Design Book and the Handbooks on Decorative Technologies to further support the plastics value chain in understanding and advancing plastic packaging recyclability.

According to the recyclability definition and the RecyClass Methodology classes A, B and C are considered recyclable, as the quality of the recyclate is good enough to be used in closed-loop or cascade open-loop applications. Detailed definitions for each class can be found in the Methodology.
