The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) is an international, voluntary standard used when part of a product, but not the entire product has been made from recycled materials. RCS aims to increase the use of recycled materials in products. Through transactional documents between all parties involved in the production process, materials are traceable. The identity of the recycled materials is maintained: from the recycler to the final product. Through the RCS, the recycled part(s) of these products can be verified. The documentation gives you and your customer proof: What was used in the product and where it came from. The RCS standard is set by Global Union, known from the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). An independent, appointed third party without any ties to the producer or production of the goods ensures authentic and impartial verification.
