For certified sustainable oil palm products, a volume-based RSPO administration fee applies.

This fee is invoiced once in the supply chain – for physical shipments from the mill to the first buyer and once for RSPO Credits to the Credit buyer. The fee is split between the RSPO Secretariat and UTZ-Rainforest Alliance, the service provider, for administration and traceability services. RSPO PalmTrace facilitates invoicing of the RSPO administration fee.
