The formerly named Compostable Packaging Certification Scheme administered by REAL has been developed and re-named Compostable Materials Certification Scheme (CMCS).
Producers of compostable products, irrespective of whether it is a packaging product, can apply to REAL for certification to the standards detailed on this page of our website here.
The CMCS has been developed to replace multiple logos, symbols, and claims about compostability with two certification marks that show if a product is suitable for composting at home or at an industrial composting facility. These trademark registered marks, displayed on our website here, have been introduced for products placed on the UK market.
