SCS Recycled Content Certification covers both products and recycling programmes. The product certification measures the percentage of post- or pre-consumer material which meets ISO 14021 definitions. Material must also conform to the requirements of the FTC Green Guides. Meanwhile, the program certification, helps recyclers and reclamation facilities make credible claims about their diversion strategies and recycling rates.
