ARC Canada is considering signing a Memorandum of Cooperation after an international roundtable earlier this year. The memorandum was initiated and signed by auto recycling associations from across the globe in an effort to increase collaborative business as well as provide a singular, united voice worldwide for the organizations.
Associations that have already signed the agreement–the U.K., U.S. and Australia to name a few–are currently sharing valuable data pertaining to current issues affecting each regional group.
Topics raised in the memorandum include the call for increased involvement and recognition from OEMs, an overhaul to auto recycling training, and a malleable global standard for auto recycling practices. As well, the partnered associations are sharing knowledge on EV recycling protocol.
Richard Dudley, the CEO of the Motor Trades Association of Australia, predicts the signings will benefit hundreds of auto recycling businesses in Australia alone, as well as provide a voice worldwide for all auto recycling associations involved.
Dudley said, “the MoC and improved access to intelligence and information with kindred auto recycling associations will strengthen our ability to achieve better policy and regulatory outcomes for Australian consumers and auto recycling businesses.”
Along with ARC Canada, New Zealand is also considering signing the Memorandum of Cooperation.
