As part of the current review of the RSPO Principles and Criteria (P&C) and RSPO Independent Smallholder Standards (ISH), the RSPO is conducting a temperature check survey on the RSPO Certification Systems to better understand any areas for improvement. The insights gained from your responses will be valuable as we tailor future efforts to support the implementation of the RSPO Standards. We would also like to encourage RSPO Members to forward the survey to relevant staff who are directly working on the RSPO Standards.
The RSPO Certification Systems sets out the requirements for the systems to be followed when implementing certification against the RSPO Principles and Criteria (P&C) and/or its National Interpretations (NIs) – including the certification of any subset of the RSPO P&C as required under the RSPO New Planting Procedure – and the RSPO Independent Smallholder (ISH) Standard and/or its local interpretations.
The survey is available in English, French, Spanish and Bahasa Indonesia. It may take 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of feedback that you share.
The survey closes on 17 June 2023. Thank you in advance for your participation.
