Importance of Certified Product Destruction

There might be situations where sending your unwanted products to the landfill or recycler may jeopardize your brand’s reputation. Here’s why you should use certified product destruction services:

Brand Protection

Unwanted products have a notorious habit of getting back into the market, instead of where they’re supposed to be. Whether it’s through online discount shops, street vendors, or unscrupulous employees. The bad news is, those grey market products can negatively impact your brand image. Sometimes, damage control might not be enough to stop consumers from associating inferior products with your business. That is why it’s crucial to hire a reputable product destruction company to prevent interception of your products on their way to landfills by dump workers, drivers, among others.

Peace of Mind

Unwanted products that find their way to the grey market can cause irreparable harm to your business’s reputation and cost you millions in lawsuits, a possible violation of court orders, and brand erosion. To avoid all these damaging implications, it’s vital to enlist the services of a certified product destruction company. When the entire product disposal process has a chain of custody, you get a certificate of destruction and photos to guarantee that the service was completed. At the end of the day, this not only protects your brand, but it also gives you peace of mind.

Limit Liability

Product recalls are not unusual. The Consumer Safety Commission (CSPC) and The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are some of the regulatory bodies that oversee recalls. Your business may be at risk of liability if expired, recalled, off-spec, or defective products aren’t properly disposed of.

Products that don’t meet your own or government standards have to be gotten rid of through a verified and certified process. This will help limit the liability of the products getting back on the market and causing harm to your brand reputation. Sometimes, for instance, when it comes to cases involving the seizure of imported goods at the point of entry or copy infringement, court orders demand certified product destruction.
