But what does all of this mean to you? What are these certifications and memberships for and what requirements did Liquid Technology have to meet in order to be granted certification?
Being certified as an e-Steward is one of the most telling ways to determine whether or not an e-waste recycler adheres to responsible recycling standards. In order to become e-Stewards Certified, a recycler must meet the following criteria:
Liquid Technology is certified under the e-Steward v4 standard. This means we are in full compliance with the most current industry standards.
R2v3 certification is a voluntary sustainability standard that certifies responsible electronics processors. IT Asset Managers partnering with Liquid Technology can have increased confidence that once their sensitive data is destroyed, electronics with residual value will either be resold or recycled to the greatest extent possible.
The R2v3 standard was released in July 2020 by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) and is the most recent and by far the most stringent standard the governing body has released to date. It is a complete rewrite of the earlier standards and also the most flexible by allowing firms to choose among six certifiable appendixes to the core principles in the main body of the standard.
The NAID AAA Certification Program is a voluntary program for NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) member companies that provide information destruction services. Developed by information security professionals, the program is recognized by private and governmental organizations around the world. Through rigorous, unannounced audits, NAID certified companies have demonstrated that they ensure the security of confidential material throughout all stages of the destruction process, this includes such areas as operational security, employee hiring and screening, the destruction process, responsible disposal, and insurance.
NAID AAA Certification helps companies meet laws and regulations that protect customer information, including:
As an NAID certified company, Liquid Technology meets or exceeds NAID’s standards and guidelines.
The ISO is the International Organization for Standardization that’s responsible for setting International standards for businesses, government and society. The ISO 14000 family of standards addresses several aspects of environmental management. More specifically, by meeting the guidelines as outlined in ISO 14001, Liquid Technology has been found to:
ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.
In order to be certified, a company must meet certain workplace safety requirements, such as air quality, noise levels, regular machine inspections, and more. What this means to consumers is that ISO 45001 certified companies, like Liquid Technology, provide their workers with the safest workplace environment possible, thereby reducing injuries and illnesses as well as mechanical downtime. This translates into greater efficiency and productivity which helps keep costs down.
ISO 9001 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is among ISO’s most well-known and widely implemented International Standards.
Last updated in 2015, this standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, and the motivation to implement and continuously improve the effectiveness of a quality management system. ISO 9001 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good-quality products and services.
