BPI is North America’s leading certifier of compostable products and packaging. Our third party certification program ensures that products and packaging displaying the BPI logo have been independently tested and verified according to scientifically based standards. We promote best practices for the diversion and recovery of compostable materials through municipal and commercial composting.

BPI & DIN CERTCO Partnership
DIN CERTCO has been hired for the administration of technical reviews under the BPI certification program, effective December 1, 2017. This will not change the appearance of the BPI certification. DIN CERTCO brings more than 2 decades of experience administering compostability certification to the partnership with BPI.
As part of the third-party certification, BPI utilizes independent laboratories. These labs must either be accredited in the scope of ASTM D6400 and ASTM D6868, or have demonstrated compliance, ensuring they are capable of performing the tests.
Benefits of Membership
Certification for compostable products is critical for ensuring that items have been properly tested, meet international standards, and can be identified as such by composters, municipalities, restaurants, consumers, and others engaged in the diversion of organic waste. BPI advocates for compostable products as tools for scalable diversion of organic waste to composting.
