The Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC) recently announced a new accreditation program that allows remanufacturers to acknowledge and validate that their remanufacturing processes conform to RIC001.1-2016: Specifications for the Process of Remanufacturing.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved RIC001.1-2016 standard provides a comprehensive and cross-sector definition of remanufacturing and, equally importantly, establishes the specific characteristics that differentiate remanufacturing from original manufacturing or other manufacturing processes. 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. 

This announcement is an important step in helping companies bring clarity to their reman process. RIC designed the accreditation program to create a consistent mechanism for remanufacturers to document operational adherence to the standard, RIC001.1-2016: Specification for the Process of Remanufacturing.

“Our members are excited about the potential this program has in creating clarity for all remanufacturers. Adherence to the program will provide remanufacturers with a recognition of competency and show their commitment to the reman industry,” said Paul Adamson, director and marketing & membership chair for RIC and chief revenue officer for America’s Remanufacturing Company.

The Remanufacturing Industries Council will officially launch the remanufacturing accreditation program at their annual conference, RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference, on Oct. 9-10 in Rochester, New York. The program will be available to both RIC members and non-members.
