Lecanto, FL, February 10, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Technology Conservation Group, Inc. (https://www.tcgrecycling.com) is excited to learn of Steve Craig’s appointment by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) to the R2 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and subsequent appointment to the R2 Consensus Body. SERI administers the Responsible Recycling (R2) Standard and Certification program for electronics recycling. The R2 TAC is responsible for developing revisions to the R2 Standard and the Consensus Body, which is a subset of the TAC, then has the authority to approve these revisions for recommendation to the SERI Board of Directors.
The members of the R2 Consensus Body were selected by the SERI Board of Directors based on factors such as area of expertise, international representation (where possible), and level of involvement in TAC discussions to date. The Consensus Body is made up of a small number of representatives from the three main stakeholder groups: electronics recyclers, upstream customers of electronics recyclers, and regulatory agencies/public interest groups.
Steve says, “I’m excited to continue working with R2 and the TAC to help strengthen what I believe to be the most complete standard for electronics recycling. The work we have done so far has been phenomenal and I know we’ll continue doing great work for our entire term.”
Adds John Lingelbach, executive director of SERI, “We are fortunate to have Steve actively involved as the R2 TAC and Consensus Body work to improve the R2 Standard. His deep knowledge of environmental, health, and safety matters relating to electronics recycling will be a great help in developing strong revisions to the Standard.”
