We repeatedly review submittals from steel manufacturer's that claim the recycled content of their products are based the Steel Recycling Institute's averages for recycled content steel = 25.5% post-consumer and 6.8% pre-consumer. Our response has always been that GBCI does not recognize the SRI as a reference standard and to use the 25% post-consumer default. I have not seen an addenda in support of the SRI's claims. Can anyone confirm or deny either approach?
