Get Ahead of Compliance


Compliance is a challenging part of doing business today. It’s regulations seem to evolve quickly, leaving IT, security and compliance teams constantly struggling to meet baselines and get ahead of the basic requirements. 

The R2:2013 Standard is the latest version of R2, the electronics recycling industry’s leading certification. This standard is recognized internationally. Adherence to this standard is required by many large companies before they will do business with any recycler. 

The standard requires companies to maintain records about which materials have been shipped to whom. These records provide a chain of custody from the purchaser all the way through to the final disposition of the recycled equipment. 

Maintaining these records has proven difficult for companies without a robust management system including software.
