Our R2 experts teach the company how to handle in a systematic way local and global concerns about the environment, health, safety, and the privacy of its data. The R2:2013 Electronic Recycling standard defines global best practises for recycling electronic equipment. The R2 Standard was developed to set minimum requirements for electronics recycling facilities, with the goal of maximising their efficiency while also protecting the environment and the well-being of their communities. The R2 Standard's parent organisation, Sustainable Electronic Recycling International (SERI), leads a broad coalition of organisations in spreading knowledge about the importance of repairing and recycling electronic devices. R2:2013 (the current version) and all future versions of the R2 Standard will be developed in accordance with the ANSI Essential Requirements for Due Process as part of SERI's core commitment to active stakeholder and public involvement.

Norms for the Operations of the Recycling Sector (RIOS)

Quality, environmental, and health and safety in the recycling industry are governed by RIOS, the Recycling Industry Operating Standard (QEH&S). ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) are just a few of the standards that the Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS) incorporates or includes to create a unified management system tailored specifically to the recycling industry.

An ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) is part of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management R2 certification, and it can help your business save money without sacrificing quality or the environment. Meeting legal requirements and expanding business opportunities are both aided by a well-implemented ISO 14001 environmental management system.

Management Systems for Health and Safety in the Workplace, according to OHSAS 18001

Compliance with ISO 14001, the applicable environmental standard, and OHSAS 18001, the applicable health and safety management standard, are both necessary for R2 compliance.

OHSAS 18001 is an internationally recognized British Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It was created to aid businesses of all sizes and types in establishing norms of safe and healthy workplace practices.

Information Destruction by NAID

Information destruction standards are overseen by NAID, which stands for the National Association for Information Destruction. Through a rigorous audit programme that includes both planned and unannounced inspections, NAID AAA certifies the competence of certified information destruction providers. This procedure aids businesses by enacting rules and regulations to safeguard private client data:

All consumer data must be destroyed prior to disposal in accordance with the FACTA Final Disposal Rule. Any company contracted to destroy consumer records must comply with the requirements, and covered entities must ensure that this is the case.

In order to comply with the FACTA Red Flags Rule, businesses that handle sensitive customer data must undergo inspections.

If a covered entity's business associates commit misconduct that leads to a security breach, the covered entity could face civil penalties under HIPAA. Avoid unnecessary hassles by only dealing with NAID-approved suppliers.

A Plan of Action for R2, RIOS, and e-Stewards Accreditation

Accredim Certification e first conducts an audit of the company's internal processes and procedures, then updates the documentation to meet the standards set by SERI (the R2 housing body). In order to get ready for the certification audit, we implement R2 and train the staff on the necessary steps to take to stay in compliance.

To further ensure conformity with the standard and the declared management system, a certification body (also known as a "registrar") conducts an audit. After passing the audit, the reliable third-party registrar issues the company a certificate of compliance. After the initial 3-year certification period, the organization must undergo additional, less rigorous surveillance audits at least once per year until the certification expires and must be renewed.

Obtaining Your e-Stewards Recycling Credentials

If you want to know how close you are to being e-Stewards compliant, Accredium Certifications  can help.

Responsible recycling and reuse of electronic equipment are outlined in the e-Stewards recycling certification Standard, a comprehensive set of performance guidelines developed for the electronics recycling and asset recovery industries within the framework of ISO 14001. The standard was developed in a multi-stakeholder process with experts and leaders in related fields, and it serves as the basis for the accredited e-Stewards certification programm
