NAID AAA Certification

Seattle, December 14, 2017 - NAID® (The National Association for Information Destruction) has announced the awarding of AAA Certification status to 3R Technology for its hard drive and media shredding services.

More than 1,000 operations on five continents are certified by NAID, including mobile, plant-based, paper, and computer destruction services. NAID certification is required by hundreds of government offices and thousands of private contracts.

NAID AAAA certification is acknowledged by many accreditation programs, such as those offered by the International Association of IT Asset Managers, the Institute of Certified Records Managers, and the R2 IT asset recycling program certification offered by the Sustainable Electronic Recycling Institute (SERI).
