Moscow, May 20, 2020. The members of Association of Quality Consumables Manufacturers and Suppliers are ready to provide Russian higher education establishments with methodological, technical and technological provisions in order to organize institutionally-based office printing cartridge remanufacturing centers. The Association is convinced that creation of such centers is not only profitable economically but also allows higher educational establishments to protect their students and tutors from harmful impact of persistent organic pollutants found in the majority of cheap low-quality cartridges on the Russian market.

The Association of Quality Consumables Manufacturers and Suppliers (AQCMS) on May 20th this year held an online-conference with participation by Association members and representatives of state organizations and large Russian higher educational establishments during which the reports by the heads of AQCMS Expert Councils were heard on the advantages of quality and environmentally safe cartridges; on economical effectiveness of remanufacturing of quality cartridges; on the Russian method of printing quality evaluation (LEM); on the results of testing of new-built cartridges presented on the Russian market; as well as on basic violations of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants by a number of manufacturers and sellers of low-quality newly-built cartridges.

Having listened to and discussed the reports, the participants of the conference expressed their concern regarding the presence on the Russian market of a large number of cheap low quality new-built cartridges, violating not only the ecological requirements of RoHS and REACH, but also the requirements of the Stockholm Convention (ratified in Russia in 2011) (a Global agreement by signed 183 country with the aim of protecting human health and environment from highly toxic substances). The participants noted that they understand the range of objective reasons having determined the present situation on the Russian market and the forced nature of procurements by a number of Russian state organizations (including higher educational establishments) of cheap consumables for office printing.

The participants from AQCMS offered to the representatives of the Russian state organizations and large Russian higher educational establishments to provide methodological, technical and technological provisions for creating their own office printing cartridge remanufacturing centers. The leading Russian companies suppliers of quality consumables offered large Russian higher educational establishments not only to supply them with high-quality cartridges of confirmed quality, but also the whole necessary set of methodological materials for repeated remanufacturing of the supplied cartridges as well as for preparing (educating) locally institutions own specialists in remanufacturing and office printing quality evaluation.

We are ready to meet right away with representatives of any Russian higher educational establishments and discuss with them the whole specter of specific issues related not only with organizing office printing cartridge remanufacturing centers by the establishments, not only with supplying these establishments with cartridges of confirmed quality, but also with preparing or re-training the establishments own specialists with their further employment. We offer the Russian higher educational establishments to really help our Association in recreating the Russian remanufacturing industry, in creating of Russian production and jobs so necessary for our country in those difficult times, told the president of AQCMS, Malinskiy S.V.

We are ready to recommend for large Russian companies the new-built cartridges of Russian and International manufacturers, if they have good printing quality, are environmentally safe and suitable for successful remanufacturing. All the above-stated characteristics of new-built cartridges must be confirmed by testing, done by Russian expert organizations based on methods legitimate on the territory of Russia. Absolutely the same requirements are applied to remanufactured cartridges. told the President of AQCMS, Dr. Stanislav Malinskiy.

Also the participants have recommended to Dr. Malinskiy, the President of AQCMS and to Dr. Alexey Belikov and Dr. Yulia Danilogorskaya, the heads of the Expert Council on Environmental Safety to continue their work on organizing meetings with the representatives of state organizations and large commercial structures for discussing the issues of practical usage of AQCMS recommendations during procurements in 2020-2021.

On 28th of April, this year, Association of Quality Consumables Manufacturers and Suppliers (AQCMS) held an on-line conference with participation by the members of the Association and a number of representatives from state and public organizations. During the conference the reports were heard from the heads of Expert Council on the subject of environmental safety (by Alexey Belikov and Yulia Danilogorskaya) regarding the results of tests done on OEM and compatible (both new and remanufactured) cartridges found on the Russian market.

After listening and discussing the reports the participants of the Conference have expressed their concerns regarding the current situation on the Russian market. The reuse of cartridges undoubtedly reduces the so-called environmental load, while single-use cartridges add to landfills. The remanufacturing (recycling) industry as a more rational and safe alternative to toxic newly-built cartridges definitely requires state support and development, - has noted Alexey Belikov. Each day the amount of data regarding the chemical composition of newly-built cartridges grows. Its not only decaBDE in plastics, but also VOCs in toner, lead in contact groups, not to forget cobalt, benzene, naphthalene The health of the office equipment users is the area which today requires our full attention. Therefore our Expert Council constantly works in contact with European Association  ETIRA and the scientific community in researching the dangers and extent of the above violations, - added Yulia Danilogorskaya.

According to the results of the discussion the Expert Council on Environmental Issues received the following tasks:

- to continue the eco-tests of OEM and compatible consumables present on the Russian market,  

- to strengthen the informing of specialists responsible for consumables procurement in state and large commercial organizations on the received test results (together with Information Agency Business-Inform);

- to submit the results of the performed tests to the Information Agency Business-Inform for  their further use in performing  scientific research on evaluation of the Russian market and creating recommendations for choosing Russian and foreign suppliers of consumables for large procurement in state and large commercial organizations;

- to take the results of the tests into the account in developing of the Program for Support and Promotion of the Remanufactured products of the confirmed quality in Russia.

The participants of the conference have recommended the President of AQCMS, Dr. Stanislav Malinskiy to continue work on organizing meeting with the representatives of state organizations and large commercial companies on discussing policing and organizational issues of supplying consumables for printing devices in 2020-2021.
