About R2:2013 and RIOS Responsible Recycling

The R2:2013 Standard is fully consistent with the requirements of the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal (“Basel Convention” or “Convention”). In many areas, R2:2013 requires practices that exceed current international legal requirements with respect to exports of used electronic equipment for materials recovery or reuse.

  1. Legal requirements governing the classification, collection and management of used equipment and e-waste are evolving in many countries as well as the global level under a multitude of international agreements, including the Basel Convention.
  2. R2:2013 requires recyclers to design, develop, and maintain a legal compliance process that ensure full compliance with all applicable environmental, health, safety, and data security requirements.
  3. An R2:2013 electronics recycler must establish and operate in compliance with an Environmental, Health, and Safety Management System (“EHSMS”) that is certified to an accredited management system standard, such as RIOS or a combination of both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
  4. R2:2013 requires that recyclers positively identify, document, and record the legal compliance of all international shipments of end-of-life (“EOL”) and untested equipment containing Focus Materials. EOL equipment containing Focus Materials would be equipment that would be at risk of qualifying as hazardous wastes under the laws of some countries.

These requirements, when taken as a whole, ensure that R2:2013 certified recyclers possess the information and management systems infrastructure to ensure that used equipment is managed compliance with applicable local, national and international legal, regulatory, and/or statutory requirements.
