EuPC to Launch OCS Certification Scheme to Reduce Pellet Loss

Following several years of continuous development and adoption of OCS program throughout the plastics value-chain, EuPC, the association of European Plastics Converters, and Plastics Europe, the association of plastics manufacturers in Europe, have decided to go a step further and have committed to jointly develop and launch by 2022 an OCS certification scheme.
Harmonized Implementation of the OCS Program
This certification scheme aims at controlling and documenting compliance with OCS requirements targeting minimization of pellet loss across the entire plastic supply chain. This will also support the effective, harmonized, and quantifiable implementation of the OCS program. The externally audited companies compliant with the certification scheme will be registered on a publicly available on-line Public Register.
The development process of this certification scheme, carried out under the supervision of a multi-stakeholders committee, gathering representatives of policymakers, NGOs, certification bodies and industry, aims at being transparent and inclusive.
In that perspective, EuPC is open a public consultation to welcome views from various stakeholders on its rules and principles as well as on its detailed audit requirements and associated checklist.
