Recycled Claim Standard (RCS)

What is 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.

Individual sites are certified by independent, third-party certification bodies using annual audits. RCS intends to track and trace recycled input material in the final product.


Principles of RCS

The RCS verifies the presence and amount of recycled material in a final product. This happens through input and chain-of-custody verification from a third party like GSCS. It allows for the transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of recycled material content claims on products. RCS might be used as a business-to-business tool to assure the consumers making an informed decision on their purchase of recycled content in the product. It is also used as a way to ensure accurate and honest communication with consumers.
