RPTA Product Stewardship Task Force

RPTA's Product Stewardship and Environmental Task Force promotes knowledge of regulatory requirements and responsible care for the safety and health of users of recycled paperboard products and consumers of products packaged in recycled paperboard. The Task Force accomplishes this through appropriate technical discussions, literature dissemination, training sessions, and research projects into the raw materials, and the methods and processes by which recycled paperboard products are produced.

This Task Force also oversees activities to maintain the "RPTA Comprehensive Program for Food-Contact Paperboard Made from Recycled Fiber." In addition, the Task Force promotes environmental compliance and stewardship.
