SERI’s R2 Standard Earns ANSI Accreditation

The Sustainable Electronics Recycling International’s (SERI’s) R2 electronics recycling standard has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

SERI says the accreditation is significant because the US government places a premium on the use of voluntary consensus standards in its procurement and regulatory activities. SERI sites the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995, which says (with minimal exceptions), “all Federal agencies and departments shall use technical standards that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies, using such technical standards as a means to carry out policy objectives or activities determined by the agencies and departments.”

This summer SERI launched a complete redesign of its website, SustainableElectronics.org, and updated its Find a Recycler feature.

The Find a Recycler directory now updates daily, as opposed to weekly, and includes information on types of materials accepted, recycling processes, and consumer drop-off availability. Users can filter or search by any category, and either download their search results to an Excel file, or create a permanent link to the search to share electronically.
