Security is Re-Tek’s key driving principle that underpins everything that we do. It has been a major area of investment for the company, and every aspect of our process has been designed to offer similar levels of protection for customer data as before equipment was de-installed.

  • All of Re-Tek’s staff, including Drivers, Engineers, Production Operatives and Account Managers are vetted in accordance with BS7858.
  • Re-Tek has a highly secure, stand alone facility.
  • For Logistics, we use only hard sided vehicles that have immobilisers and GPS tracking, and customers sign and receive a Secure Waste Transfer Form that records details of the equipment collected.
  • Our Engineers are Tabernus trained to implement CESG IAS5 Lower Level and Higher Level Data Erasures, backed by a Tabernus £10m per drive insurance policy.

 

As a result, we have been consistently certified with a ‘Distinction’ pass against the ‘ADISA’ IT Disposal standard since our first audit.  This is one of the highest achievement levels available.

Accreditation with ADISA involves un-announced spot check audits of every aspect of our service, including random forensic testing of equipment that has been through the data destruction process to ensure there is no recoverable data on the hard drive.

Re-Tek also holds ISO27001 accreditation which we also passed with ease on our first audit in February 2013.

Re-Tek welcome customers into our facility at any time, and regularly host customer audit teams who certify our operations against their own exacting standards.
