ISRI approves electronics recycling operating principles.
ISRI's Electronics Recycling Council has worked with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other industry stakeholders to develop the document, which it says outlines the best practices for the electronics recycling industry.
ISRI says its voluntary electronics recycling practices can be used by companies that would like to ensure that obsolete electronics and their constituent materials are recycled "in compliance with all applicable environmental, health and safety regulations and in a manner that protects the global environment and the health and safety of workers in the United States and other countries."
ISRI's Electronics Council designed the guidelines to be incorporated by reference into the association's Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS), which integrates industry-specific standards into an environmental, quality and health and safety management system. The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board has agreed to develop and administer an accreditation system for RIOS certifiers.
