Posted: 23 November, 2021. Written by Georgia

We have developed a guidance document to provide clear information on how to identify independently certified compostable materials. The guidance has been designed for everyone, including consumers, and composting or AD site operators.

We are now seeking feedback on the document through public consultation. We would be interested to receive views, particularly on whether the guidance achieves its aim and whether the information is clearly presented. Though we welcome any feedback.

The guidance can be found below. You are welcome to provide your feedback in a Word or Excel file and send it to Justyna Staff at There is currently no deadline for this open consultation.


* UPDATE: The deadline for this consultation is 31st December 2021.

*UPDATE: The deadline for any final comments and feedback is 31st January 2022.
