Remanufacturing makes sense — it means returning a used product to as good as new condition, with no compromise. An old product can regain the value of a new one while making impressive environmental and cost savings.

Remanufacturing is the process of disassembly and recovery at the module level and, eventually, at the component level. It requires the repair or replacement of worn out or obsolete components and modules. Parts subject to degradation affecting the performance or the expected life of the whole are replaced.

Remanufacturing differs from other recovery processes in its completeness: a remanufactured machine should match the same customer expectation as new machines. There are three types of remanufacturing activities, each with different operational challenges.

Many industries have already embraced this valuable technique including Automotive, ICT, electronics and Aerospace. BSI's standards can help you understand and make the most of this process..

Key Standards


BS 8887-220:2010
Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE). The process of remanufacture. Specification

BS 8887-220 specifies requirements for the process of remanufacture.

It lists the steps required to change a used product into an as-new product, with at least equivalent performance and warranty of a comparable new replacement product. This remanufacturing process can include parts or components to be used in subsequent assembly.

BS 8887-220 should be read in conjunction with BS 8887-2, (Which gives terms and definitions) and you may also be interested in BS 8887-1 which is aimed at the design stage.

BS 8887-1:2006
Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE). General concepts, process and requirements

BS 8887-1:2006 specifies the requirements for the design and preparation of technical product documentation for the manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE) of products.

BS 8887 is appropriate to all types of manufacture and identifies the use of ISO Standards relevant to design for manufacture. It is structured to provide the designer with a framework for the selection, preparation and presentation of appropriate documentation, so that the design concept can be transferred into and beyond the manufacturing environment.

BS 8887-2:2009
Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE). Terms and definitions

BS 8887-2 defines terms used in the design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE).

Standard terminology can help transfer a design concept to manufacture in a way that is most efficient, cost effective and environmentally aware. BS 8887-2 aims to remove any ambiguity surrounding design terminology, thereby reducing possible confusion both to industry and to end users.

Definitions cover a number of terms bought into common industry use as the result of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoH) Regulations 2008 and other legislation.

BS 8887-2 is appropriate to all types of manufacture.  Users of
BS 8887-1 and BS 8888 will find these definitions applicable to the design processes. Businesses and designers wanting a more precise approach to design specification should also find the standard very useful
