We are pleased to announce a public consultation starting today, on a revision of the RSPO Rules on Market Communications and Claims.

The revised document is now available as draft for public consultation to download here. A number of important changes have been made which are summarised in an overview guidance note for easy reference. Click here for the Changes Overview document. 

Main changes include:

  • revised rules for the Book & Claim model, following end of endorsement of the GreenPalm platform.
  • a brand new module on RSPO NEXT claims rules.
  • additional guidance for members operating in food service.

We invite all members and interested stakeholders to submit comments to this email address by 12 October 2016, 12:00 CET.

All comments will be logged and taken into consideration by the Standing Committee, before finalising the new Rules for approval by the Board of Governors in November 2016.
