Learn about product stewardship recycler auditing, with a focus on cross-comparison between conventional EHS Auditing and the case of Oracle Corporation’s Recycler Audit Program for product take-back/Reverse Logistics. Discussion will focus on hardware and batteries, practical strategies, tools, successful approaches, insufficient vs. excessive data and verification, internal and external stakeholders, programmatic change, and existing and proposed regulatory applicability and conformance to industry standards (e.g., verifying conformance to the R2 Standard).

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the key difference between non-traditional, third-party recyler audit programs and traditional EHS audit programs.
  • Discover best practices - what works, what doesn't work, and why.
