Sustainability together

Apply for certification

Recycler – CERUB certification shows you are a sustainable player in the circular economy! The certification guarantees you are taking responsibility for your end-of-life tyres, 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 rubber of which end-use application is known can be certified. Certified rubber may contain small amounts of fibre and steel originated from tyres. The certification is always specific for a defined use. With this, we make sure the material quality requirements for safe use in the particular use will be met. 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
Conduct annual internal audits to review the actualisation of the CERUB criteria. 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 self-declaration is verified by an external auditor once in 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 for showing your responsibility and the sustainability of your tyre materials.
