NSF Certifies First Automotive Recyclers in Australia
ANN ARBOR, Mich., US and SYDNEY, Australia – NSF, a global organization with more than 70 years of expertise in independent product testing, auditing and certification, including automotive supply chain products, has issued its first automotive recycler certifications to three companies in Australia. ASV Euro Car Parts in Sydney, Grant Walker Parts in Melbourne and Paradise Auto Parts in Adelaide meet all of the NSF certification requirements, including rigorous grading, operational, labeling and traceability requirements, as well as safety and environmental compliance requirements.
NSF’s automotive recycler certification provides independent third-party confirmation that automotive recyclers meet national and local recycler requirements including environmental and safety requirements. Additional requirements for certification include having processes in place for vehicle acquisition, dismantling, equipment, parts storage and customer service as well as inventory tracking and recall procedures.
"The National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council supports standards that help the automotive recycling industry enhance their operations from a safety, provenance and environmental perspective,” said Ray Carroll, Executive Director, National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council. “NSF certification provides recyclers a means to demonstrate this commitment.”
Recyclers that meet all certification requirements are authorized to use the NSF Certified Automotive Recycler mark on their website and promotional materials, and are included in NSF's online listings. NSF certified recyclers undergo annual facility audits to maintain certification.
“Being the first Australian recyclers to earn NSF automotive recycler certification exemplifies ASV Euro Car Parts’, Grant Walker Parts’ and Paradise Auto Parts’ outstanding dedication and commitment to safety, the environment and customer service,” said Bob Frayer, Global Managing Director of NSF’s Automotive Certification Programs.
