Global Recycle Standard (GRS)
The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full-product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled Content, the chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The goal of the GRS is to increase the use of Recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production.

Objectives of the GRS are:
• Alignment of definitions across multiple applications.
• Track and trace Recycled input materials.
• Provide customers (both brands and consumers) with a tool to make informed decisions.
• Reduce the harmful impact of production on people and the environment.
• Provide assurance that materials in the final product are Recycled and processed more sustainably.
• Drive innovation in addressing quality issues in the use of Recycled materials.
The Global Recycled Standard is intended for use with any product that contains at least 20% Recycled Material. Each stage of production is required to be certified, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction. Material Collection and Material Concentration sites are subject to self-declaration, document collection, and on-site visits. The GRS does not address quality or legal compliance.
This is a voluntary standard that is not intended to meet the legal or regulatory requirements of any country. It is the responsibility of each operation to demonstrate compliance with all applicable laws and regulations related to marketing, labour, and business practices. Sellers of GRS products are advised to reference the allowed Recycled Content claims in the countries of sale, to ensure that they are meeting all legal product claim requirements.
