A new Electronic Reporting Policy was adopted during ISRI's April 4 Board Meeting to replace the previous position statement.
The new policy does not take a position on electronic
reporting, per se, but instead outlines provisions that must be in place to
provide adequate protection for recyclers and their customers if a governing
body is contemplating requiring electronic reporting of scrap metal
The language is intended to set out an inclusive
policy that would not require an opt-out option for chapters or states as did
the previous position statement. The new policy is intended to provide guidance
for members' advocacy efforts where electronic reporting is actively being
considered and to serve as an informational leave-behind when meeting with
policymakers. To obtain a copy of the new policy please contact Justin Short. For questions about how this new policy may
apply in your state, ISRI encourages members to consult with their chapter leaders
or contact Danielle
Waterfield at ISRI headquarters.
