New Pricing Structure Announced for the Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS™)

Recycling facilities, including non-profit organizations, are now able to become Recycling Industry Operating Standard™ (RIOS™) members at a reduced cost under a more streamlined price model.

For the first time, RIOS™ membership will now be available for a flat annual fee. Beginning immediately, all facilities are eligible for this new cost structure. These changes are permanent and reflect an ongoing effort to improve industry-wide recycling practices through responsible recycling certification.

RIOS™ certification is a globally accepted quality, environmental, health and safety (QEH&S) management system designed for and by recyclers. As the premiere certification for all scrap recyclers, RIOS™ provides assurance that a facility’s operations meet the highest standards in the industry. Additionally, RIOS™ meets the requirement in the R2:2013 Standard for an approved EH&S management system.

“With the changes to the R2 Standard, this is an ideal time for facilities to enroll in the RIOS™ program to comply with R2:2013 provision,” said RIOS™ Director Darrell Kendall. “The pricing initiative further raises awareness of the RIOS™ certification while offering recycling facilities of all sizes access to the best standard in the industry.”

The annual pricing structure follows:

 

Discounted Rate for ISRI Members

Non-Profit and Governmental

Standard RIOS™ Rate

First Facility

$1,250

$1,000

$4,200

Each Additional Facility

$1,200

$1,350

$3,500

 

The announcement of the new pricing model will be presented on September 10 at an educational certification session hosted by ISRI at the annual E-Scrap Conference in Orlando. RIOS™ will be promoted on the trade show floor at booth #709 during the conference. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the RIOS™ booth to meet the new RIOS™ Director, Darrell Kendall, to spin the RIOS™ trivia wheel and to learn about the “RIOS™ Golden Ticket.”

To learn more, or to become a RIOS™ member, contact Darrell Kendall at dkendall@certifymerecycling.org or 202-662-8528 or visit www.certifymerecycling.org.
