No matter the specialization of an R2 Facility as designated on their R2 Certificate, customers can be assured that all of their equipment will be responsibly processed through this pre-qualified and audited chain of DSVs. Each R2 Facility that manages a downstream recycling chain will be certified to Appendix A.
R2v3 | Responsible Recycling
Provides a rigorous standard for performing sanitization and verifying that it is done right. It requires records created by data wiping software for proof of sanitization for each device. It no longer allows manual processing that is prone to human errors or falsification of records. Furthermore, it requires that cloud connections such as “Find my iPhone” are removed in the process so data cannot be repopulated later. Most importantly, it establishes enhanced controls to verify sanitization and validate the entire process.
As an R2 Facility we are certified to a Quality Management System like RIOS or ISO 9001. We implement product safety verification to ensure the electronics are safe for reuse. And most importantly in today’s world, we ensure that the residual user data on any used electronic is permanently destroyed in accordance with the stringent requirements for logical data sanitization.
Our goal is to assure that brokering is done responsibly and that all streams are processed by qualified facilities in accordance with the R2 Standard. We facilitate the collection and recycling of equipment to meet EPR mandates.
