SERI previewed a platform for engaging with recyclers and auditors in managing the R2 Certification process at the e-Scrap Conference that was held earlier this month in New Orleans. ChainPoint is a software service that is used to manage the certification programs of sustainability standards. ChainPoint is designed to streamline interactions and exchanges of documentation between recyclers, auditors, certification bodies, and SERI in the process of certifying and maintaining certification.
Before making any implementation decisions, SERI will assemble a user group to work with the system and provide feedback. SERI believes a system such as ChainPoint would help contain costs of the certification process by enabling scalability and efficiency to all stakeholders in the certification process.
