Excerpt from SERI.org
“The electronics industry is continually changing, and to keep pace, our best practices and standards need to evolve, as well. R2v3 incorporates our experience gained from more than a decade auditing and implementing the R2 Standard and reflects changes in the electronics landscape, customer demands, and the regulatory environment.
Many of the changes in v3 are a result of feedback submitted by customers, members of the industry, and the public. The result is an R2 Standard that’s more powerful, easier to adopt, and works even harder to protect data, people and the planet, while enriching lives all around the globe.” - Quote from SERI.org
Now that the R2v3 of the Responsible Recycling standard update released 1 July. Companies are required to secure ISO 9001:2015 certification to comply. Core Business Solutions helps hundreds of companies each year prepare for certification through our online/remote process and technology.”
