The RIC Standards Committee has worked with a diverse consensus body to develop and submit a groundbreaking proposed standard to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for remanufacturing.
ANSI approved the proposed standard, Titled RIC001.1-2016: Specifications for the Process of Remanufacturing, on February 2, 2017.
This standard defines and provides a benchmark for the process of remanufacturing, and establishes specifications that characterize the remanufacturing process and differentiate remanufacturing from other practices.
The specifications in this standard will promote continual improvement in the remanufacturing process and help ensure that the products provided to customers by the remanufacturing industry are dependable and of a consistent high quality.
This standard is intended to serve as a baseline for additional standards for specific remanufactured products and product groups to be developed in the future.
