The American Reman Standard
The remanufacturing standard developed by RIC, in collaboration with a diverse consensus body, defines and provides a benchmark for the process of remanufacturing, and establishes specifications that characterize the remanufacturing process and differentiate remanufacturing from other practices.
The specifications in this standard will promote continual improvement in the remanufacturing process and help ensure that the products provided to customers by the remanufacturing industry are dependable and of a consistently high quality.
