SREA Reasonable Care Compliance Program


The Superfund Recycling Equity Act (SREA) Reasonable Care Compliance Program saves ISRI’s members both time and money by helping scrap processors and brokers perform, with ‘reasonable care’, due diligence on a scrap-consuming facility’s environmental compliance record as required by federal law to help provide a valid defense against a Superfund liability claim. Participation in ISRI’s SREA Reasonable Care Compliance Program spares members from having to dig through complicated regulations and environmental compliance records before determining whether or not to ship to a customer. Participation in this program gives you a competitive advantage over scrap processors and brokers who are not ISRI members.

ISRI provides this specialized service to its members at a substantial discount! ISRI has selected KERAMIDA as its vendor of choice to provide SREA Reports. KERAMIDA is an environmental consulting firm with 30 years of expertise in conducting environmental due diligence, access to numerous federal, state and local regulatory databases, and experience interpreting environmental regulations and site-specific records. Under contract with ISRI, KERAMIDA’s professionals will compile, for each site ordered, a SREA report which contains a concise, user-friendly facility evaluation along with supporting backup data gathered from searching over 1,200 federal, state, and local databases; FOIA requests; and facility questionnaires. While the retail value of these reports exceeds $1,000 each, in 2018, during the SREA Program’s “Open Season,” ISRI is offering members the opportunity to receive the reports for only $40 each!

ISRI-SREA-FLOW-CHARTAccording to recommendations from industry and legal experts, ISRI Members should follow these guidelines when ordering SREA Reports:
