|RTRS Group and Multi-site Certification Standard|
What is the Multisite Certification?
It is the process of issuing just one certificate that covers several agricultural sites under the same property, administration and controlling systems. The agricultural sites are run by employees of the company that holds the certificate, and not by sharecroppers (who should belong to a group certification scheme.)
The RTRS Group and Multi-site Certification Standard presents the requirements for producer groups that wish to apply for RTRS certification as a group and for individual companies that wish to apply for RTRS certification to cover multiple sites. The standard outlines a set of requirements related to the establishment of an Internal Control System (ICS) to ensure that the group members comply with the RTRS requirements for responsible soy production.
What is Group Certification?
Group certification is a mechanism designed to increase access to RTRS certification for smaller producers. Group certification allows group members to share the costs of the certification assessment, and subsequent annual surveillance assessments by applying for a single certificate.
