Content certification scheme
Two Commission Regulations of the EU are relevant to establish end-of-waste status for metal scrap under Directive 2008/98/EC. Firstly the Commission Regulation No. 333/2011 regarding iron, steel and aluminium scrap, and secondly the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 715/2013 regarding copper scrap. Kiwa certifies metal recycling companies based on the end-of-waste certification scheme, which fully covers the requirements from these regulations. The end-of-waste certificate reliably demonstrates to customers and other stakeholders that a metal recycling company complies with European Commission Regulations 333/2011 and 715/2013.
This certification scheme is for organizations trading in scrap metal.
