Packaging - Determination of the degree of disintegration under simulated home composting conditions

General information

European Standard

13.030.99     55.040  


This document specifies a method of determining the degree of disintegration of packaging materials when exposed to a laboratory-scale home composting environment. The method is not applicable to the determination of the biodegradability of packaging materials under home composting conditions. Other methods are available for this (e.g. see ISO 14851, ISO 14852 or ISO 14855-1 and ISO 14855-2). Further testing is necessary to be able to claim home compostability.
