BS EN 45557:2020 pdf free.General method for assessing the proportion of recycled material content in energy-related products.
This document specifies a general method for assessing the proportion of recycled material in an energy-related product. This document is applicable as the framework to be used for defining the assessment of recycled materials content in specific product groups.
It is not intended to generate publicly available product information and compare products in the absence of a product standard based on this document.
This document does not cover aspects such as quality and physical properties of recycled materials. This document does not apply to the assessment of reused components.
NOTE EN 45556:2019 provides a general method for assessing the proportion of reused components in ErPs.

NOTE See CLC/TR 45550:-’ for additional definitions related to material efficiency of ErP.
3.1.1 Definitions related to materials primary material material made from virgin raw material(s) recycled material material which is either pre-consumer material or post-consumer material
4 General assessment procedure
Primary materials and recycled materials are often physically or chemically indistinguishable, and there are currently no reliable, accurate and reproducible methods available for directly measuring the recycled materials content in a product. For the purpose of this document, the verification of recycled materials content therefore relies on documented proof for traceability (see Clause 6) provided by the relevant operator in the CoC. Recycled materials content is expressed as the average ratio of recycled materials used to the total production output of energy-related products over a specific period of time.
The assessment of recycled materials content requires:
1) description of the scope of the assessment (see 5.1);
2) description of materials composition of a single product (see 5.2 and 5.3);
3) a management system to trace the type of material inputs, for both primary and recycled materials (see Clause 6);
4) performance of a mass balance calculation, linking recycled materials content of parts/products to total materials in parts/products produced (see Clause 7).
While Clause 7 elaborates on how to determine the recycled materials content of an ErP or its parts, Annex A elaborates on how to determine the recycled materials content of a material, as manufacturers can sometimes be ErP manufacturers, part manufacturers and/or material manufacturers. It is advised to refer to the respective part of this document.
In Annex A material manufacturers are the main audience addressed.
5 Description of material composition of ErPs
5.1 Scope of the assessment
The users of this document shall define the scope of the assessment and select Its appropriate elements as detailed below. The assessment shall be applied either to
— the ErP, or
— partsoftheErP.
It is possible to perform the assessment of the ErP or parts at different levels for
— all materials, or
— a type of material, e.g. plastic, metal, glass (more details provided in 5.2), or
— individual material, e.g. polypropylene, aluminium, float glass (more details provided in 5.2).BS EN 45557 pdf free download.
