R2:2013 - A Leader in Responsible Recycling
The R2:2013 Standard is the latest version of R2, the electronics recycling industry's leading certification. Each provision of the R2 Standard is designed to help ensure the quality, transparency, and environmental and social responsibility, of R2 Certified electronics recycling facilities.
R2:2013 was developed through a transparent multi-stakeholder process. To learn more about that process, click here.

Help Improve R2
R2 has been successful because of active input from participants like you. Please help us improve our process, and the R2 standard itself, by contributing to the ongoing authorship of this document.
Formal Interpretations to the R2 Standard provide official explanation of a specific word or phrase in the R2 Standard.
They are developed by the R2 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), voted on by the R2 Consensus Body, and adopted by the SERI Board in accordance with SERI’s Manual of Policies and Procedures for R2 Standard Development.
Formal Interpretations become part of the R2 Standard and, upon their Effective Date, shall be treated as such by all involved in the R2 Certification Program (e.g. recyclers, Certification Bodies, auditors).
