Accurate IT Services is a Certified Electronics Recycler
Sustainable Electronics Recycling International’s (SERI) voluntary Responsible Recycling (R2) certification is dedicated to practices that ensure the customer their e-waste is being handled in a professional and environmentally sound manner. Focusing on the strict selection of downstream vendors that have also been certified by SERI, and the appropriate management of Focus Materials (i.e. circuit boards, batteries, mercury-containing equipment), our R2 certification provides the customer positive assurance on how their e-waste is handled.
The International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer expectations and requirements. It further aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement and assurance of conformity to applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
The International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 14001:2015 environmental management standards exist to help organizations minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment, comply with applicable laws and regulations, and continually improve their operations in all forms. With an established Environmental Management System (EMS), an organization is able to identify and control all of its environmental impacts and implement a systematic approach to achieving environmental objectives and targets, all in the culmination of continual improvement.
The International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.
