Reman Day — 14 April, 2022

REmanufacturing is one of the most important industries for the Circular Economy.

A LITTLE OVER A MONTH TO PLAN!

How to keep within planetary boundaries.

Remanufacturing is getting more organized

Remanufacturing is getting more organized:

Remanufacturing Definition and the Reman Standard:
a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn or non-functional product or part is returned to a “like-new” or “better-than-new” condition, from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible and sustainable process

Remanufacturing is getting more organized:

Reman in the marketplace

Use the symbol, below, along with the label, to mark your remanufactured products and spread the image of REMAN.

The revised reman standard, published in 2021, introduced a mark that companies can use to identify that their process complies with RIC001.2-2021: Specifications for the Process of Remanufacturing.

Look for this symbol (below), along with the label, identifying products that are remanufactured using a certified remanufacturing process.

REMAN LABEL

(any company with Remanufacturing services in compliance with and)
in conformance with ANSI/RIC001.2-2021

A Slide Deck:
Remanufacturing: a Journey from American to International Standard

Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC) took the first step in the standardization effort with an ANSI standard for remanufacturing that was published in 2017. The published ANSI standard has since been well received across industries and an effort to globalize the standards effort is underway.
What’s Next?
Now that the 2021 revision has been published, RIC’s Trade & Policy Committee is discussing the next steps, including the possibility of an international remanufacturing standard.

This: slide deck starts with a discussion of the ANSI standard that has been completed, what worked, lessons learned and in 2021 was further revised. Then starting at slide 12 it dives into how RIC is working to develop a global standard for remanufacturing, including challenges and opportunities. This is slide 17:

Here is a series of posts about Africa and one of the business areas that I believe Africa could take on in a big way: Remanufacturing, to re-use all the old imported products on the continent:
Africa – Please Stay Harmonised with planet Earth.
