    APR PCR Certification

How does APR PCR Certification work?

APR PCR Certification provides transparency to support a reliable, robust PCR market. Any plastics reclaimer generating PCR pellet or flake can participate in this program to provide customer assurances in the authenticity of their product.

Brand companies and converters can commit to using certified PCR to meet sustainability goals and prepare for upcoming regulations.

APR PCR Certification has three components:

  1. APR endorses third-party companies to conduct certifications.
  2. Reclaimers hire these companies to conduct certification.
  3. APR promotes a listing of certified PCR available from reclaimers who are APR members.
