The Remanufacturing Industries Council has been celebrating World Standards Day, two years after completing the first ANSI approved remanufacturing process standard.

As Jenn Brake, Director of Marketing and Membership at RIC has revealed, the Remanufacturing Industries Council is an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer and in 2016 created the first ANSI approved remanufacturing process standard, RIC001.1-2016: Specifications for the Process of Remanufacturing.

This standard, Brake says, offers a comprehensive and cross-sector definition of remanufacturing and, even more importantly, “establishes the specific characteristics that differentiate remanufacturing from original manufacturing or other manufacturing processes.”

She goes on to explain that, “while some manufacturing processes include important earth friendly practices, remanufacturing is unique in the additional steps necessary to return a “Core” (a worn, failed, or end-of-use part/product) to “like-new” or “better-than-new” condition.” 

World Standards Day, which took place on 14 October 2018, was an important occasion for RIC, with Brake stating that the event “gives us the opportunity to celebrate what makes the reman industry unique”.

World Standards Day was first launched in 1970, as a means of recognising and celebrating “those involved in the standards community, including business leaders, industry, academia, and government.”
