Liability is something that you should always be trying to reduce. No one wants to lose clients or even their business over a mistake, especially a mistake that a vendor made. At Sadoff, how do we limit liability for e-recycling and data destruction clients? Can you even be liable for mistakes that a vendor makes? Find out in our blog.

Could Your Business Be Liable For E-Recycling Mistakes?

If your e-recycler handles your company’s e-waste incorrectly, then your business can still be held liable or found in violation of either state or federal environmental regulations. This can be true even if your e-recycler is the one who is at fault.

This is why it is so important that you work with certified e-recyclers. Certifications like ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, and R2v3 are vital. You also want an e-recycler that is an i-SIGMA Member and being ITAR registered is ideal as well. Without those certifications, you are putting your business at risk, but even with them, mistakes can be made and you need to ensure that your trusted e-recycling partner is mitigating your risk and ensuring that you are not liable for their mistake. That’s what Sadoff does.
