DESCRIPTION

20/30396915 DC


This standard 20/30396915 DC BS EN 17427. Packaging. Requirements and test scheme for carrier bags suitable for treatment in well-managed home composting installations is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 55.080 Sacks. Bags

This document specifies a testing scheme and requirements for the designation of carrier bags of any materials that are considered to be suitable for the incorporation into well-managed home composting installations run by householders for personal uses. Carrier bags are considered as suitable for home composting only if all the individual components meet the requirements.

The following five aspects are addressed:

  1. characterization;

  2. biodegradation;

  3. disintegration during home composting;

  4. compost quality;

  5. recognizability.

The first four aspects (a) to d)) are assessing the effects on the biological treatment process and the compost made by it. The fifth aspect ensures the recognizability of home compostable carrier bags by the end user.

This document forms the basis for the labelling of carrier bags of any material that are considered to be suitable for the incorporation into well-managed home composting installations.

NOTE 1

Compliance with the requirements of this document by the carrier bags entering the compost does not necessarily imply that a high-quality compost will be produced.

This document covers the home compostability of the carrier bags themselves but does not address regulations that may exist regarding the home compostability of any residual contents.

The testing scheme and the requirements specified by this document do not apply to worm composting and/or industrial composting.

It does not provide information on the biodegradability of carrier bags ending up in the environment as litter.

This document includes a reference to guides to well-managed home composting (Annex E).

Compost produced by a private individual is for his own use and not for provision to others, free of charge or in return for payment. This document has no value as a marketing authorization or authorization of use of the final compost.

NOTE 2

The testing scheme and evaluation criteria could be the basis for the establishment of suitability to home composting of other products.
