PFI launch extension to RMC to benefit more product ranges

PFI are excited to announce new upgrades to the PFI Recycled Material Certification (RMC). The RMC 2.0 has a reduced requirement for recycled content, opening up accessibility for brands to certify a wider range of products.

The newly released RMC 2.0 Standard changed the requirements for obtaining an RMC certification. The recycled content requirements for products has been reduced to 5% from >50% to ensure that as the RMC expands, it can be more inclusive of a variety of products and incorporate more materials outside of Polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

The RMC 2.0 certification comprises three parts;

  1. It ensures that part of the product, in surface area or weight, is made from recycled material. The minimum acceptable amount of recycled material is 5% of the overall finished product.
  2. A full RMC certification guarantees that the recycled content of the product is >50% recycled PET. Where the recycled material content is between 5 – 50%, an RMC Mixed certification is awarded.
  3. It verifies that facilities involved in the manufacturing of certified products comply with social and environmental standards.
