The IT asset disposition process is intricate and sometimes dangerous, and companies are liable at all stages of the ITAD process. For this reason, compliance is a critical factor in enterprise risk management. Additionally, a certified ITAD vendor is the most reliable way to ensure environmental compliance when it comes to electronics recycling.
Improper IT asset disposition can lead to air and water pollution, eventually contaminating the surrounding water supply if e-waste is sent to landfills. Irresponsible e-recycling can also result in negative repercussions for a business. ITAD vendors and their customers that are aware of all downstream outlets and partners handling the e-waste are less susceptible to fines that go along with irresponsible electronics recycling.
Certifications like R2v3, RIOS, and ISO-14001 ensure all equipment is processed under full legislative compliance, and it is important to partner with an ITAD provider who prioritizes updating certifications regularly to mitigate compliance risks. R2v3 is an updated version of the R2 certification, including tighter safety measures regarding data security and a more detailed description of services, such as a scope statement, process requirements, and a list of other locations.
Throughout our programs, HOBI prioritizes legislation-compliant, environmentally-sound refurbishment, recycling and disposal. Each HOBI facility undergoes yearly audits for re-certification. Along with maintaining the highest standards in-house, HOBI only partners with R2-certified downstream vendors that are thoroughly audited each year for compliance standards.
In addition to our R2v3, RIOS, and ISO-14001 certifications, HOBI is also WBE certified with more than 30 years of experience in the industry and services ranging from data security and erasure to reverse logistics.
