The Recycling Industry Operating Standard® (RIOS®) was established by The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc (ISRI) and about 50 RIOS Charter Members. Its purpose is to provide a systematic framework for recycling plants to achieve measurable continual improvement in their QEH&S performance. The standard builds on the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001platforms.
The result is a QEHS standard comprising most of the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, written specifically for the scrap recycling industry.
