Why Send Product Recalls To Us?
Unforeseen events such as product recalls are often unavoidable and manufacturers need to be prepared for these situations. With the help of g2, manufacturers can feel confident that products being recalled will be thoroughly managed for end-of-life as agreed upon. We understand that these situations are unexpected, which is why our ability to provide a quick, realistic solution is critical to the manufacturer. Importantly, we strive to find realistic recycling opportunities for recalled products whenever possible.
Our data management system allows Manufacturers to access and download data from a recall and utilize it as evidence that the product has been properly handled. We provide the ease-of-mind that post-recall disposal or recycling is being managed effectively and efficiently.
How Does It Work?
Where Can I Find My Program Data?
When we set up your recycling account, you are provided with secure login access to an online data system that contains all your recycling records. Every single material is tracked and is individually recorded, including by distribution/manufacturing facility, if you have multiple locations. So you can know instantly how well your recycling program is being implemented! You can also query the database to see your records over a set period of time, or within a select geography, to manage your program with precision. And finally, you can download certificates of recycling if you need paper-based records.
What Are the Regulations?
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an independent agency of the United States government. The CPSC seeks to promote the safety of consumer products by addressing "unreasonable risks" of injury (though coordinating recalls, evaluating products that are the subject of consumer complaints or industry reports, etc.); developing uniform safety standards (some mandatory, some through a voluntary standards process); and conducting research into product-related illness and injury. The CPSC may work through voluntary or mandatory recalls, depending on the particular issues surrounding a given product and manufacture actions and cooperation.
