News: UK - CRR certifying to PAS141
PAS 141 has been developed to improve the quality of re-used electrical goods being processed by both commercial and charitable reuse organisations.
Thursday, 13th December 2012
Funding came from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills and WRAP, and includes input from the charity and commercial sector as well as important bodies such as the Environment Agency. After a recent head office assessment by a team of auditors from UKAS we are pleased to announce that, subject to addressing points raised in the audit, they have recommended that we gain accreditation for certifying Publicly Available Specification 141 (PAS 141). This means we will begin offering certification to this standard. If we become accredited, electrical re-use organisations certified by us will be able to apply to join a nationally recognised scheme of electrical re-use organisations. See more about our certification to PAS 141 and how to apply by going to the webpage . Alternatively, please contact Ben Walsh to discuss your needs.
