ASTM WK78414

Revision of D6400-19 Standard Specification for Labeling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities


ASTM D6400 has an incorrect reference for Canadian heavy metals. In discussion with the Compost Council of Canada and the Bureau de normalisation du Quebec (BNQ), we have identified the correct references for Canada. This includes a national standard, plus a provincial standard, to ensure the limits are protective enough and trusted by composters across Canada.
