Cross-border trade of second-hand goods

ISO 20245:2017 establishes minimum screening criteria for second-hand goods that are traded, sold, offered for sale, donated or exchanged between countries.

ISO 20245:2017 is intended to help protect health, safety and the environment in which second-hand goods interact, when used by consumers.

ISO 20245:2017 does not apply to goods that are remanufactured, rebuilt or refurbished.
