About the National Interpretation Process.

Being an international organisation, RTRS acknowledges the different realities, geographies, regulations and production systems around the world. Within this framework, a national multistakeholder technical group was set up, formed by representatives from the three RTRS constituencies: Producers; Industry, Trade and Finance; and Civil Society. The group also included observers, researchers and members of the academia, law experts and government representatives. The WG was formed by 100% of the applicants and was coordinated and moderated by the RTRS Executive Secretariat.

In March and May 2017, two in-person working days took place in the City of Buenos Aires, with more than 20 participants on each day.

National Interpretations are processes for analysing, interpreting and adapting the RTRS Standard of Production in line with the national, province, state or district law, and with the law applicable to the soy production process relevant to the country developing such national interpretation. It also requires taking into account any relevant international treaty and agreement that each country may have adopted. Once ratified and approved by RTRS Executive Board, the National Interpretation of the RTRS Standard of Responsible Soy Production that each soy-producing country may develop shall become the basis for certification in the relevant country.
