    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.

    APR-endorsed Auditors

    NOTE: California Senate Bill 270 requires that reusable bags distributed or sold in California must meet certain standards, including postconsumer recycled content. Any plastic reclaimer’s PCR which has been certified under the State of California’s SB 270 requirements would be considered certified PCR by APR.
