The GRS Certification Audit Consists of 4 Parts: Product Regeneration and Supply Chain Requirements, Social Responsibility, Environmental, and Chemical.
Product Regeneration and Supply Chain Requirements:
1.Products with a recycled content of 20% or more.
2.Declared recycled materials should follow a complete and verified regulatory chain from input to final product.
1.Workers employed by companies involved in GRS product production are protected by strong social responsibility policies.
2.GRS social requirements are based on the principles of a global social responsibility compliance program. In all cases, the applicability of international labor standards, national and/or local legislation, or the strictest GRS requirements should not violate applicable laws.
1.Companies involved in GRS product production should have a high level of environmental awareness.
2.GRS environmental requirements apply to all operations within the certification organization. In all cases, the strictest national and/or local regulations or GRS requirements should be applied.
3.Wastewater generated by factories should be regularly monitored/tested.
1.Chemicals used in the production of GRS products should not cause unnecessary harm to the environment or workers.
2.GRS only applies to the use and management of chemicals in the production process of GRS products. The standard does not apply to the entire facility, but only to the production of GRS products. GRS does not address chemicals present in the final product because it cannot control any chemicals that may be present in recycled products used as initial inputs in the GRS production chain.
