RIPA offers several useful publications for those involved with container reconditioning and related concerns. For instance, you can order RIPA’s comprehensive guide on industrial packaging: “Responsible Packaging Management” which details many key considerations in packaging management. Also, reconditioners can order “Rejection Stickers” for returning unacceptable “empties” and the “Proper Drum and IBC Emptying Poster” which is useful to share with customers. Also, you can order hard copies of the convenient “RIPA Membership Directory.” RIPA member companies are sent annually a set of directories for free. But it’s nice to know a couple extra copies can always be procured.
Also available for order is the “RIPA Composite IBC Compliance Manual” (hard copy) for just $25. This manual was used at the March 2013 RIPA IBC Compliance Workshop in Tampa, FL. An excellent companion piece is the PowerPoint slideshow from the Workshop available to members only: click HERE.
