Reference Document: R2 Code of Practices – VC1
Each R2 certified recycler must renew its license yearly by payment of its licensing fee to SERI per the Code of Practices (VC1). If the recycler does not pay by the renewal date, the following action is taken.
- SERI will notify Certification Bodies (CB) when payment is not received from the recycler by the license/payment due date. The R2 certificate must be suspended by the CB upon notification from SERI and effective the day after license/payment due date. Company name will be removed from the SERI directory. (Suspension will be lifted by CB if license is signed and fee is received by SERI within 45 days of renewal date.)
- CB must revoke the R2 Certificate if the license is not signed and the fee is not received* by SERI within 45 days of license/fee due date. (If a certificate is revoked and the company wants to regain its certification, it will need to start over with the new certification audit process.)
*Please note -- the fastest way for payments to post is to use the online payment link embedded in the invoice. Online payments can be made using a credit card or e-check. Payments made by wire transfer or mailed check can take much longer before reaching SERI.
