What is RIOS?
The Recycling Industry Operating Standard™ (RIOS™) is the recycling industry’s management system standard for quality, environment, health and safety (QEH&S). Specifically designed for the recycling industry, RIOS™ integrates key operational elements found in other standards, such as ISO 9001 (Q), ISO 14001 (E), and OHSAS 18001 (H&S), bringing them together into one streamlined management system.
What is R2/RIOS?
The R2/RIOS™ certification is solely for electronics recyclers to demonstrate to customers that electronics equipment is being recycled with the highest standards for environmental control, worker health and safety, and data and facility security.
R2/RIOS™ is a combination of the Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices and the Recycling Industry Operating Standards™ (RIOS™). R2 was developed by a broad-based cooperative of electronics recycling stakeholders that included the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state governments, manufacturers, recyclers, trade groups and non-governmental organizations.
