Compliance

Oceanworks® guarantees the origin of all ocean plastic in the network. We document what materials are harvested and how they were collected. We monitor the chain of custody and we provide impact metrics and stories for each end product. To do this we have established a compliance based process on four pillars.

 

1. Supplier Qualification  

Suppliers first complete a rigorous self-assessment providing detailed information and supporting documentation on: 1) collection area compliance, 2) operations and safety, 3) legal compliance, 4) environmental stewardship, and 5) social impact.

Oceanworks conducts site visits to spot check these claims. In addition, we have partnered with third-party auditors for bespoke supply chain audits upon customer request. 

 

2. Material Approval

We vet each verified resin in the marketplace. Our suppliers take pride in the quality of the recycled ocean plastics they provide and we validate their claims with testing performed by an independent third-party laboratory. Approved materials are then added to the marketplace for sampling. Suppliers may also be able to customize materials to your specific requirements. For volume buyers, if the initial samples don’t meet your needs, Oceanworks technical experts will work with you to find a workable solution.

 

3. Chain of Custody

Oceanworks uses POs to document material quantity, type, location, and date of shipment, generating a unique reference identifier for each material and product combination. We follow the iSEAL process and use manufacturing data to determine ocean plastic utilization and impact on a mass balance basis.

 

4. Code of Conduct

We are committed to building a transparent and ethical marketplace. All Members pledge to follow the Oceanworks Code of Conduct. This is our promise to the consumer that every Oceanworks Guaranteed marked product has been sourced in alignment with four key principles.
