News: UK: New End of Life Design Standard released
After nearly a year in development, we are please to announce that BS8887-220: Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing - Part 220: Remanufacture has been published and is now available for purchase from the BSI website.
Monday, 29th March 2010
It defines the processes by which used product is turned, through a series of manufacturing of steps, into a product which is as good as new.
BS8887-220 has been written so that it is applicable to all types of remanufacturers. Even so, it is very much a first step, a platform upon which a specific sector can define a more focused standard for a particular product. We are open to ideas for the development of new sub-standards, so if you feel your products could benefit, please contact Ben Walsh to discuss your proposal. The standard can be purchased from the BSI website by clicking on the external weblink to the left.
