For companies seeking an AQSIQ license, this is a reminder that the Recycling Industry Operating StandardTM (RIOS) is an acceptable alternative to ISO 9001.
RIOS was developed for recyclers by ISRI, and in addition to Quality and Health and Safety RIOS covers environmental- a focus of the Chinese government. If you are looking to upgrade your current ISO 9001 certification to the latest version or are looking to obtain your first AQSIQ license, please be aware that RIOS is an option that is designed for our industry. For more information about RIOS and the certification process, please visit www.RIOScertification.org. RIOS will also be hosting an informational webinar on the implementation process of the standard on February 13, 2018 at 2pm. To register for that please contact Michelle Woody.
