Publication date: 19.02.2024


ARPRO Recycled grades produced at the manufacturing sites in France and Czech Republic are all RecyClass certified. This certification verifies that the recycled content is from post-consumer waste not production waste.

The results of the Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification are as follows:

ARPRO 5275 RE contains 25% recycled plastics certified by RecyClass.
ARPRO 5121 RE, ARPRO 5133 RE, ARPRO 5253 RE and ARPRO 5135 RE ESDP contain 30% recycled plastics certified by RecyClass.
ARPRO REvolution contains 90% recycled plastics certified by RecyClass

The recycling process traceability is certified according to EN 15343:2007.

RecyClass is an independent third-party EU certification scheme to verify claimed recycled content and the origin of the recycled content. For ARPRO, this means post-consumer recycled content (PCR). RecyClass Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification allows JSP EMEA to claim the use of recycled plastics in ARPRO Recycled grades. The certification verifies that traceability of the use of recycled plastics in products is in place within the whole value chain process. The certification scheme was developed according to ISO 22095 and EN 15343 on traceability, conformity assessment and calculation of recycled content. The certification is granted via independent Certification Bodies.

“Sustainability claims, sometimes referred to as 'greenwashing', are often seen in the market.” Ivana Vejražková, Sustainability & SEQ Manager for JSP EMEA. “The RecyClass certification mark allows us to confidently demonstrate our sustainability efforts. This provides a distinct advantage in a competitive marketplace for products that demonstrate real and proven environmental benefits.”

Upcoming regulatory requirements at EU level call for a transparent, structured, and consistent approach to recyclability and recycled content claims on the EU market. RecyClass is a non-profit, cross-industry initiative facilitating the transition toward a circular plastic future and
has established the foundation for a common methodology for recyclability and an approach for the calculation of recycled content.
