Guidance

In this section you will find information, guidance, and useful resources about certified compostable materials.

REAL has developed a guidance document for individuals and organisations that use, compost, dispose of, or process certified compostable materials. The Compostables Labelling Guidance provides clear information on how to identify certified compostable materials. This guidance is aimed at everyone, including individual consumers, businesses e.g. caterers/restaurants, local authorities/councils and contractors, and composting/AD facilities. REAL is currently consulting on the version which can be found here.
