Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) will release an updated version of the R2 (Responsible Recycling Practices) Standard later this year, according to the January 2019 issue of “R2 Update.” The e-newsletter is produced by Boulder, Colorado-based SERI, the housing body for the standard.
R2v3, the third version of the R2 Standard, “will mark the next phase in the evolution of the R2 Certification program,” writes Corey Dehmey, SERI executive director, in “R2 Update.”
He writes that a draft will be released for public comment early this spring, with the final version being published in the fall. “The SERI team will be spending this year developing and retooling resources to assist auditors and R2 certified organizations to begin the transition to R2v3,” Dehmey adds.
He writes that updates will be available on the organization’s LinkedIn page at www.linkedin.com/showcase/r2-certification.
