During this public comment period members of the supply chain from all manufacturing segments, NGOs, and other stakeholders with interests in the standard are invited to submit comments. In addition to providing comments on the standard itself, participants are invited to comment on the first of the material modules – the Plastics module. This module defines how the principles of the RMS apply specifically to the plastics recycling value chain. Future modules will be developed for other materials.
NSF International has guided the standards development process, gathering input from supply chain representatives at each stage of development to ensure that the standard can be implemented in practice and is relevant to today’s challenges.
The public consultation period is open until 18 December 2020.
