This document specifies methods of information exchange between waste handlers and recyclers for rare earth elements (REEs) contained in industrial waste and end-of-life (EOL) products. This document facilitates the efficient recycling of REEs so that dependency on mining can be reduced by promotion of REE recycling. This document also includes a generic life cycle of the REE recycling process.

This document specifies a system for sampling procedures for testing plastics waste and recyclates which take into account the specifics of the plastics waste and recyclates. It is intended to cover all stages of the plastic recycling process.
The sampling procedures include the statistical specifics of the plastic waste and the behaviour of recyclates.
The sampling method is expected to produce a representative testing sample. Differences can arise due to:
-   the mixture of plastics;
-   the origin (e.g. green dot in Germany, or electronic/automotive industry);
-   the previous use of the plastic material;
-   the residual contents (e.g. of containers);
-   inert, residual or moisture content on or in the material.

The purpose of this Technical Report is to provide information about a procedure based on the determination of a visual index correlated with the content of textile fibers, free and bounded to the rubber, of granulates. This approach is currently used by Spanish grinders in order to control the efficiency of their processes and is effective for granulates with particle sizes whose bottom limit is higher than 0,5 mm and upper limit lower than 10 mm.

This European Standard is applicable to the processes relating to the preparing for re-use of WEEE.
NOTE 1   This European Standard covers the preparing for re-use of WEEE arising from electrical and electronic equipment as listed in Annex I and Annex III of Directive 2012/19/EU.
This European Standard is applicable to preparing for re-use operators only and does not cover activities connected with used or second-hand equipment that have not become waste. It applies to all preparing for re-use operators, no matter their size or main focus of activity.
This European Standard assists in quantifying re-use, recycling and recovery rates in conjunction with EN 50625-1.
In case of treatment operations (including the collection and logistics of WEEE) other than preparing for re-use the EN 50625 series applies.
Preparing for re-use processes can include the removal of whole components or parts where they are intended to either be used in the repair of faulty equipment or sold as re-use parts.
The following EEE are not in the scope of this standard:
-    industrial monitoring and control instruments;
-    in vitro diagnostic medical devices, medical devices or active implantable devices.
NOTE 2   Examples of industrial monitoring and control instruments include equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, and monitoring and control equipment that performs a safety function as part of industrial control system.
NOTE 3   In vitro diagnostic medical devices, medical devices and active implantable devices have the capacity to collect and harbour pathogens, depending on the environment in which they operated. It is essential to follow clinically proven means for decontamination. Relevant Directives are 93/42/EEC and 98/79/EC.

This Technical Specification specifies an analytical method for testing food grade, recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). This analytical method provides / is intended to be used as a quality control check. This test identifies and quantifies certain specified contaminants. Such contaminants are referred to as Marker Compounds.
The analytical method is applicable for use on PET samples and products at all stages in the recycling process and will therefore be useful to recycling companies producing commercial, recycled PET for food contact materials and articles, and the manufacturers of such articles.
This Technical Specification is without prejudice to any existing legislation.
NOTE   Marker compounds are known to originate from two sources:
-   from the PET material itself (i.e. residual monomers, degradation products or reaction/breakdown products);
-   from food products that the PET has contacted during its first use.
WARNING: The use of this Technical Specification may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment.
Persons using this Technical Specification should be familiar with normal laboratory practise. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user to establish appropriate safety and health practises and to ensure compliance with any national regulatory conditions.
IMPORTANT - It is absolutely essential that tests conducted according to this Technical Specification be carried out by suitably trained staff.

This European Standard provides a scheme for the characterisation of plastics wastes, laying out those properties for which the supplier of the waste shall make information available to the purchaser, and identifying test methods where applicable. The scheme provides for a division of information between "Required Data", where a statement is required, even if it is "unclassified", and additional "Optional Data" which the supplier may choose to provide if it adds value to the waste.
This standard is applicable without prejudice to any existing legislation.
NOTE   This standard does not cover the characterisation of plastics recyclates.

This Technical Report gives methods of assessing the performance of a reuse system related to the proportion of reused packaging in use. This may be measured by:
-   the average number of rotations during a calculation period and the lifetime, or
-   the reuse ratio.
The choice of method will vary according to the type of reuse system and information available.
