Downstream Due Diligence
Downstream due diligence is a key component of the R2v3 Standard. It refers to the process by which electronics recyclers assess and manage the environmental, health, safety, and data security risks associated with their downstream partners in the recycling chain. Downstream partners include other recyclers, refurbishers, resellers, brokers, and disposal facilities. Our experts ensure that you have all the documentation needed to show full and complete due diligence of all your downstream partners.
Data Sanitization & Security Audits
R2v3, appendix a (8)(d)(2)(d) requires data sanitization audits for non-R2 DSV be conducted by an independent and competent auditor that has completed “SERI approved data sanitization training with maintenance through annual refresher training.” Berkeley court consultants have undergone SERI lead auditor and continually undergo annual refresher trainings. We provide downstream vendor audit services including on-site or remote audits, gathering of objective evidence, and audit reporting for your downstream vendors.
Under R2v3, recyclers must establish and implement a documented downstream due diligence program to ensure that their downstream partners comply with the R2 Standard’s requirements. This includes verifying that downstream vendors are properly managing materials, following environmentally sound practices, and handling data securely.
The downstream due diligence process typically involves conducting audits, inspections, and documentation reviews of downstream facilities. Recyclers are also required to maintain records of their due diligence activities and to make those records available to auditors and regulators upon request.
By implementing downstream due diligence, R2v3 aims to promote responsible practices throughout the entire electronics recycling supply chain, ensuring that materials are managed in an environmentally sound manner and minimizing risks to human health and data security.
