The BPI Approval Process & Test Requirements
BPI certification is a third party process using independent labs and an accredited technical reviewer to determine whether materials and products meet the ASTM standards for compostability. The basic steps and costs are outlined below, and a more detailed set of requirements can be found in BPI's Certification Scheme.
If you have questions about what tests to complete, we can help you determine this based on your formulation and what you plan to market as compostable. Once your test results have been determined to meet our requirements, your company will be eligible to license BPI’s Compostable Logo to indicate that your products or packaging are certified.
