The Pulse of ITAD: SERI Approves Updated R2 Standard

Brooks Hoffman

The Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) Board of Directors has unanimously approved R2v3, an update to the R2:2013 electronics recycling and reuse standard. The update was led by a multi-stakeholder group called the R2 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The standard will replace R2:2013, to which over 950 facilities around the world are currently certified. Major changes include the strengthening of requirements in a number of key areas, including: data protection, downstream material flows, inventory tracking, and Environmental Health & Safety.
