Responsible Recycling Practices ( R2 : 2013 ) & R2:RIOS

We have significant experience and resources for implementing Environment Management Systems, which meet the requirements of ISO 140001. Our ASQ international network of consultants and auditors has helped businesses across the USA reduce their carbon footprint, manage environmental business risk, and prevent accidents, which may harm the environmental and personnel.

Therefore, we recently have developed a Program for the Implementation of Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices, which shall prepare a business for R2:2008 Certification by an ANAB accredited Certifying Body.

Our implementation and management training plan includes:

  • We will provide an in-depth business and R2 consultation.
  • We will provide an Environmental Health & Safety Management System (EHSMS) documentation, which includes an R2 policy manual, procedures manual, required forms, logs and a cross-reference index to your external documents, process and work instructions.
  • Optionally, we will include QMSCAPA software for internal auditing, corrective and preventive records for management review.
  • Optionally, we can concurrently prepare your business for ISO 14001 Certification and/or ISO 9001.
