New step for AENOR in its commitment to sustainability

29/09/2021

AENOR has been accredited by the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) in accordance with the standard UNE-EN 15343 for the certification scheme Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification and the Recycled Plastic Content certification.

This accreditation means that the Recycled Plastic Content certification is now available to AENOR customers, who can benefit from the tax advantages provided for in the draft law Waste and Contaminated Land Bill, which proposes a special tax for non-reusable plastic packaging. This tax can be reduced or eliminated by presenting a certificate duly accredited by ENAC.

Similarly, accreditation with the Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification provides transparent and independent information on the source of the recycled plastics and its duly certified transformation process to recycled material, which will facilitate its reincorporation for new applications into the plastics value chain.

This represents a further step for AENOR in its commitment to sustainability and the development of effective solutions in the field of the Circular Economy for plastics, which over 30 organisations have applied since the launch of this certification scheme.
