We would like to inform you about our latest news
The Committee of Experts (CoE) of ‘Responsibly Produced Peat’ intends to advice the Board to grant the RPP-certificate to the company AS Greenyard Horticulture Latvia for the location Lambarte. This intended decision is based on the fact that the company meets the requirements of the RPP certification scheme version 1.1.1. The fulfilment of the criteria is checked by an independent inspector (ECAS) at location.
With the implementation of chapter 6, the Chain of Custody, it was decided to adjust the entire certification scheme. This new version of the certification scheme will be valid as of March 1, 2018, and will remain the basis for decision-making to RPP certification for 2 years (till the 1st of March, 2020). During that time, new experiences may lead to adjustments in the next version.
Chapter 6 (Chain of Custody and use of the RPP label) is approved by the Board and will be implemented in the new version of the certification scheme.
The Board of Responsibly Produced Peat has recently granted three certificates to AS Kraver for the locations Soosaare II, Soosaare III and Tässi.
The Board of Responsibly Produced Peat has recently granted two certificates to EUFLOR GmbH for the locations Aschhorner Moor and Wolfsbrucher Moor- stade.
