Why should you view this course?

With 27 different states in European Union having their own standards to meet, added pressure of EU Circular Economy Action Plan 2020, Covid 19 situation (sterilization of packaging), and available data that is way too technical or simply biased because of stakeholders, all of this has made biodegradable/compostable packaging certification difficult. 


And considering so many issues at bay, if one fails to meet the standards then not only it can affect the launch of the product but might even lead to penalty from the EU Commission. Yet! The need for compliance is imminent. Join our upcoming course and:


  • Speed Up your certification process & standard (EU 13432) compliance for biodegradable/compostable packaging with certification organization insight (DINCERTCO and VINCOTTE).
  • Learn about differences & equalities between EU 13432 vs. US approach for compostable packaging.
  • Prevent future liability issues by timely running appropriate tests (ISO 16929, EN ISO 14851:2019…) to determine compliance.
  • Do not miss out on innovations (new materials) and delimitation of different packaging in context with biodegradation and recyclability.


Who should view this course?

Material Suppliers, Food Packaging Manufacturers (OEMs), Individuals in Plastic Value Chain in Packaging looking for approval as per EU and US Food Regulation.
