Businesses have often found the recycling and disposal of old, unused, and redundant IT equipment difficult, time consuming, and a costly process. Often leaving them unsure if company data, specifically sensitive data, has been safely removed from old equipment.

Companies have long offered IT recycling services so it’s often hard to know which ones guarantee legal compliance. With this in mind, Glasgow Computer Recycling – part of the S2S Group, has worked diligently towards obtaining the ADISA Standard 8.0 certification, enabling GDPR compliant IT recycling services. On achieving this certification, Glasgow Computer Recycling is now the first and only IT recycling company in Scotland to be certified to this standard.  

What is ADISA Standard 8.0?

The ADISA Standard 8.0 is the only IT Asset Disposal certification mapped to law that can be used as evidence for GDPR compliance. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has approved the Standard 8.0 as a recognised UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) certification scheme.

How Does This Benefits You?

Working with an ADISA Standard 8.0 certified company like Glasgow Computer Recycling, organisations can ensure their IT asset disposal processes are compliant with UK GDPR regulations effectively managing risk and provide protection from potential legal disputes.
