Reconditioning Standard for Electrical Equipment, Components and Apparatus for Reuse in Commercial and Industrial Applications
As a standards developer, PEARL’s commitment to the betterment of the electrical equipment reconditioning industry has been validated by the American National Standards
Institute’s (ANSI) recent accreditation of PEARL’s Electrical Equipment Reconditioning Standard for Electrical Apparatus and Equipment. The standard, which defines the procedures
required to assess, recondition and validate electrical equipment for safe reuse was approved in October, 2018.
“This is an incredible achievement for PEARL and its membership,” said Howard Herndon, president of PEARL. “As an organization, PEARL took the leadership position on
developing the standard for ANSI accreditation, which signifies the standard as a legitimate and authoritative document focused on reconditioned electrical equipment.”
The standard is now available for pre-order at PEARL1.org and shipment will take place in mid-April, 2019. It is offered in a range of formats including a downloadable digital file
that will be easy to search. Nonmembers can purchase the EERS for $299 while members can get it for $99.
Founded in 1997, the Professional Electrical Apparatus Reconditioning League (PEARL) is a national trade organization for companies that supply quality surplus and
reconditioned/remanufactured electrical equipment and apparatus. PEARL is an ANSI accredited standards developer.
