The NSF full-service automotive recycler certification program provides independent, third-party certification for automotive recyclers and confirms recyclers’ ability to meet requirements such as grading, labeling and traceability as well as federal, state and local recycler requirements.

NSF International worked with automotive recyclers and industry experts to develop the requirements for the automotive recycler certification program in accordance with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) procedures. The program helps insurers, regulators and consumers identify certified recyclers that comply with business, licensing, reporting, environmental and safety requirements as well as operations requirements for vehicle acquisition, dismantling, equipment, parts storage, customer service and sales.

Benefits of Certification

There are thousands of automotive recyclers in the U.S. today. With NSF recycler certification, qualifying recyclers now have a way to differentiate themselves in terms of providing high quality recycled parts.

Certification means that consumers can have full confidence that parts purchased from NSF certified recyclers are graded and labeled properly. Certification requirements includes requirements for vehicle acquisition, part grading, initial inventory, dismantling, stocking, sales, delivery, recalls, traceability, customer service, equipment and document retention.
