The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS)

The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) is an international, voluntary standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled input and chain of custody. The goal of the RCS is to increase the use of Recycled materials and to provide assurance that materials are actually Recycled and in a final product.

The Recycled Claim Standard is intended for use with any product that contains at least 5% Recycled Material. Each stage of production is required to be certified, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction. The RCS does not address social or environmental aspects of processing and manufacturing, quality, or legal compliance.

ETKO offers RCS certification service for textile industry.
