Compost Certification Scheme

Compost Certification Scheme provides assurance to consumers, farmers, food producers and retailers that quality compost is safe, reliable and of consistent high quality. Compost is produced by composting organic materials and the Scheme provides means for compost producers to become certified to the BSI PAS 100, the Compost Quality Protocol, SEPA's RPS for Compost, and the CCS Scheme Rules. Certified waste-derived compost is no longer considered to be waste and has achieved product status
