CIC's compostability certification

An Italian certification scheme since 2006

CIC started in 2006 a certification scheme on biodegradable materials and - in particular - on compostable products. The certification scheme ensures the material’s ability to turn into Compost during the industrial composting process. Particularly CIC checks compostability by testing materials on a full scale industrial composting process. Hence these materials are truly and effectively compostable during real-scale composting process. CIC’s compostable certification program meets the European regulation EN:13432 on compostable packaging.


Not being a certification body, CIC has partnered with Certiquality, a market leader in certification standards, in charge of Auditing the companies applying for the CIC-compostable label for certification. The trademark "CIC Compostabile" logo is issued after audits and tests performed by CIC in cooperation with Certiquality.


Nowadays more than 50 products are certified with CIC’s compostabiliy scheme and 30 companies are licenced to use the compostability logo. The detailed list of compostable products certified according to the "Compostabile CIC" scheme can be found at:
