Change in the classification of pre-consumer reclaimed paper
With the effective date 07 October 2015,
FSC CoC certificate holders may classify pre-consumer reclaimed paper materials as equivalent to FSC certified and post-consumer reclaimed materials for the purpose of determining the FSC Mix or FSC Recycled output claims for products controlled under the percentage or credit system.
This means that there is no need to keep pre- and post-consumer recycled paper separate, and that ALL recycled paper fiber is equal to FSC certified fiber.
This is not relevant for recycled WOOD.
