Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a product standard created to monitor and verify the content of recycled materials in the final product, fulfilling stringent manufacturing requirements. GRS International is a complete product standard that specifies requirements for voluntary, third-party certification of recycle content, chain of custody, social and environmental requirements, and chemical restrictions.
This standard can be applied to all companies that produce or sell GRS products. It covers the processing, production, packaging, labeling and distribution of all products containing a minimum of 20% recycle material. There is no requirement for GRS certification for material collection and material concentration processes, but they must declare that they are in compliance with the requirements in accordance with the objectives of the standard and can be randomly audited by the certification body. The variety of products that can be certified is not limited to textile products.
