Seattle turns to PEARL for testing and reconditioning standards

The electrical industry's association of electrical product recyclers, reconditioners and surplus dealers said it won important recognition for its product testing and remanufacturing standards when the City of Seattle became one of the first major metropolitan areas to include electrical reconditioning standards developed by the Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League (PEARL) as a requisite for new electrical testing, assessment and remanufacturing services.

Early this month, PEARL said in a release, the city announced it was seeking to contract for electrical testing, assessment, and remanufacturing services. The invitation to bid specified that officials in Seattle were looking to obtain “standardized, qualified services” from a PEARL member – and in doing so it affirmed the city’s confidence in PEARL’s reconditioning standards. The city anticipates spending up to $500,000 per year for the services.
