Resource: Remanufacturing Standards: BSI MADE 8887 series
There is a need for standards in certain remanufacturing industries to ensure that products labelled ‘remanufactured’ meet a build specification that is acceptable to the customer.
Tuesday, 6th November 2007
SummaryThe CRR has collaborated with British Standards to develop a remanufacturing standard. Our initial aim has been to include remanufacturing in the exisitng BS8887 Design for Manufacture, Assembly, Disassembly and End of life (MADE) as a valid strategy for end of life components.We have also developed a second part of the Standard which tightly defines remanufacturing.These standards can be customised to your product or sector. Contact us if you think that your industry could benefit from its own protocol to underpin the quality of work performed by remanufacturers.
