R2- Recycling of Electrical & Electronic

The Responsible Recycling (R2) Standard provides a common set of processes, safety measures and documentation requirements for businesses that repair and recycle used electronics.






RCS=Recycle Claim Standard

The RCS verifies the presence and amount of recycled material in a final product. This happens through input and chain-of-custody verification from a third party. It allows for the transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of recycled material content claims on products.







GRS-Global Recycled Standard

The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) are international, voluntary standards that set requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The shared goal of the standards is to increase the use of recycled materials. The GRS includes additional criteria for social and environmental processing requirements and chemical restrictions.
