On 1 February 2020, the RSPO Board of Governors endorsed the revised RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard, Supply Chain requirements for mills Principles and Criteria (P&C 2018) and the RSPO Supply Chain Certification Systems.

As such, the RSPO P&C 2018 has now been updated to incorporate the revised Supply Chain requirements for mills (Principle 3 of P&C). The revised standard is effective immediately from the date of this announcement. It is currently available in English and can be downloaded here

The National interpretation is also being updated currently, hence audits against the National Interpretation will need to refer to the Supply Chain requirements for mills (Criteria 3.8) of the revised P&C 2018.
