Several requirements in Version 4.0 of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard
reference C2CPII-recognized certification programs, standards, or testing methods that may be used to comply with the requirement. Program, standard, or test method development organizations may complete this application to apply for their certification program, standard, or testing method to become a “C2CPII-recognized Program” in the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard, Version 4.0. Please note that applications from other entities will not be accepted.
The requirements for becoming a "C2CPII-recognized Program" are provided in the Version 4.0 User Guidance, Section 14, Appendix 2 – Process for Becoming a C2CPII-recognized Program. A program, standard, or testing method must meet the following requirements to receive C2CPII recognition:
- The program, standard, or testing method includes the technical requirement(s) and otherwise addresses the issues and intent as defined in the Version 4.0 requirement, and
- The system administering and developing the certification program/standard or testing method includes the framework and process elements based on the ISEAL Credibility Principles listed in the C2CPII-Recognized Program Documentation Form (see Tab #2 in the Excel file).
Note: System requirements for recognition are subject to change. Decisions to recognize programs, standards, and testing methods are made in C2CPII’s sole discretion.
Programs/standards that do not issue a third-party verified certificate/certification are not eligible for recognition (e.g., ISO 26000 and similar provide guidelines rather than a certification standard).
Please provide the requested information for the certification program, standard, or testing method below.
Note: Please complete a separate application for each certification program, standard, or testing method applying to become a "C2CPII-recognized Program."
An application fee of 875 USD$ / 750 EUR€ will be invoiced for each application received.
