The industry’s long wait for an accreditation exclusively for remanufactured products is over.
A ground-breaking accreditation program for all remanufacturers is being launched by the Remanufacturing Industries Council,
(RIC), that allows remanufacturers to acknowledge and validate that their remanufacturing processes conform to the standard approved by the American National Standards Institute, (ANSI).
The standard, RIC001.1-2016: Specifications for the Process of Remanufacturing, provides a comprehensive and cross-sector definition of remanufacturing, while also establishing the specific characteristics that differentiate remanufacturing from original manufacturing and other manufacturing processes.
“Our members are excited about the potential this program has in creating clarity for all remanufacturers. Adherence to the program will provide remanufacturers with a recognition of competency and show their commitment to the reman industry,” said Paul Adamson, Director and Marketing & Membership Chair for RIC and Chief Revenue Officer for America’s Remanufacturing Company.
The Remanufacturing Industries Council will officially launch the remanufacturing accreditation program at the annual RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference, on October 9-10, 2019, in Rochester New York.
The program will be available to both RIC members and non-members.
