Sustainability together

Apply for certification

Recycling company – The CERUB certification shows you are a sustainable player in the circular economy! The certification guarantees you take responsibility for your end-of-life tyres, the environment, health, and tyre material’s applicability to the specified end-use.

CERUB certification applies to tyre shreds, granulates, and powder derived from old tyres. Only the tyre derived material with a known end use can be certified. Certified rubber may contain small amounts of fibre and steel originating from tyres. The certificate is always separate and specific to the application. This ensures that the material meets the quality requirements for safe use in its designed application. The certificate is always granted for all your operations in the country, and it is valid for three years.

Applying for a certificate is easy

  1. Register your company and apply for a certificate on the CERUB website.
  2. Book an On-site Audit. An accredited auditor (DNV GL) verifies that your organisation fulfils CERUB criteria and proposes CERUB certificate be granted. If your organisation operates in several locations or units, all units will be included in the audit.
  3. Complete the application on the CERUB intranet.
  4. Conduct On-site Audit.
  5. The CERUB Association assesses the auditors’ proposal and grants /denies the certificate.

Maintaining certification
Carry out annual internal audits to ensure that the CERUB criteria are met. If your organisation operates in several units or locations, each unit or location must be surveyed at least once in the three-year period. Headquarter operations must be surveyed every year. The organisation’s own audits are confirmed by an external auditor once every three years. The CERUB certificate is valid for three years.

Showcase your sustainability 
Your certification will be published on the CERUB website. Use the certification, CERUB labels, and trademark to show your responsibility and sustainability of your tyre materials.
