EPC Adds Certifications in EuropeOctober 19, 2021
EPC, Inc. (EPC), a subsidiary of CSI Leasing, Inc. (CSI) and one of the world’s largest IT asset disposition (ITAD) providers, has recently announced that its ITAD affiliates in the UK and Slovakia (EPC Global Solutions UK Limited and EPC Global Solutions Slovakia, s.r.o.) are now fully certified to the following standards:
PAS99 – Integrated Management System
ISO 9001 – Quality Management System
ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System
ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System
For the UK, ISO 45001 is a new certification, while all others are recertifications. However, this is the first time the Slovakian company has achieved all certifications. These certifications also apply to their parent companies, CSI Leasing UK Ltd and CSI Leasing Slovakia, s.r.o.
“Achieving these certifications is proof we are committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service, along with environmentally-sustainable solutions and safe working conditions for our employees,” said Damian Rushworth, European Remarketing and Lifecycle Services Manager for EPC Global Solutions. “I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our compliance team who worked tirelessly to ensure the facilities met the required physical, procedural and documentational improvements needed.”
In addition to the European certifications, all EPC companies around the world are Blancco Certified Data Erasure Platinum Partners and Certified Microsoft Authorized Refurbishers. Each company is also working toward R2 certification, which is scheduled to be completed in 2022. Additionally, each region holds its own set of certifications relevant to local laws and regulations, including NAID, e-Stewards and ISO 14001 in the U.S. and NAID in Canada, among others.
Headquartered just outside St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A., EPC has 17 ITAD processing facilities worldwide, along with a vast network of strategic vendor alliances. All told, EPC services nearly 70 countries, making its global geographic footprint one of the largest in the ITAD industry.
