I first learned of Redemtech last year when I did a series of posts on e-waste -- the regulations, the responsibility, the problem. The Columbus, Ohio-based company specializes in asset recovery and IT asset management, and is a founding member of the e-Steward responsible recyclers coalition. The company works to keep its customers informed of the state of the recycling industry, as well as the laws and regulations that affect the services it provides.
To that end, this week Redemtech announced the availability of two databases it will maintain to keep customers and other interested parties abreast of the regulatory and legislative activity affecting the industry it serves. The first covers data security regulations from state and federal levels in the U.S. and Canada as well as several regions overseas, and the second covers e-waste regulations in the U.S., Canada and other regions overseas. Both can be downloaded as PDF files with jump links, according to the Web site.
Redemtech president Robert Houghton says:
As governments enact more laws to address growing e-waste and data security concerns, staying abreast of relevant regulations can be a time-consuming process for a wide range of stakeholders, from IT and security to the finance, legal and compliance staffs. Our database will streamline the process and help companies ensure their compliance when addressing a wide range of volatile issues, from consumer privacy breaches to financial audits and environmental sustainability.
