Buenos Aires (Argentina) ‒ The RTRS promotes the continual improvement and is aware and wants to represent the different opinions and needs of its members. Therefore, and considering the review periods established in the RTRS Responsible Soy Production Standard V1.0 and V2.0, the RTRS starts its Review Process of the RTRS Responsible Soy Production Standard V2.0.
The present task aims to a full review of the standard and, if necessary, the determination to undertake the update and amendments based on the experience of the application and certification of this standard since version 1.0 was approved in 2010. More information on the process and work plan can be found on the RTRS-website.
The scope of this review will be determined considering the feedback from public consultation, certification bodies with experience in the certification process and the RTRS Secretariat and Board of Directors.
To achieve the objective of the full review, the RTRS will convene a Technical Group (parties interested in this were asked to apply by May 4th). Furthermore, the RTRS encourages all stakeholders and interested parties to send their comments about the content of the standard during this review process. The comments will feed into the discussions among Working Group members over the forthcoming Version 3.0 of the Production Standard.
Deadline for submitting comments is May 8th,2015. Comments can be submitted following “Template for the first PC”.
