GRS & RCS Recycling Standards

Improved Traceability & Auditing

The Global Recycling Standard (GRS) and the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) are international standards with the aim to increase the use of Recycled materials, via more extensive certification and criteria in the processing and usage.

These standards are completely voluntary but offer a more traceable and certifiable pathway for recycled materials, to ensure products that they go on to be part of, can have full traceability as with new fabrics and materials.

At Hazchem Safety we have introduced Workwear ranges that include this Certification.
