RPP certification scheme version 2.0
With the implementation of the Chain of Custody, it was decided to adjust the entire certification scheme.
This new version, the RPP certification scheme version 2.0, 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.
Look for the new scheme on this website under "Get involved" in the menu.
Chain of Custody
The RPP Chain of Custody is included in the new RPP certification scheme version 2.0.
The Principles and Criteria are described in chapter 6 of the scheme.
Companies can only participate in the RPP Chain of Custody after registration and compliance with chapter 6 of the certification scheme.
Two new forms are developed for the Chain of Custody:
- The RPP Registration agreement
- RPP Due Diligence Agreement
(for companies that supply the non-certified part of peat)
The registration agreement is also for all companies, organisations or persons that actively want to support RPP.
Read the full explanation of the RPP Chain of Custody under "Get involved" in the menu of this website.
The RPP label.
The new RPP-label can be used on the packaging of peat or growing media.
The right to use the label is given by RPP to a registered company on the basis of compliance with RPP Chain of Custody (chapter 6) and checking the evidence given by the company.
Companies producing certified peat are already registered and can ask the secretariat for their label. The exact conditions for the use of the RPP-label are defined in the new vesion of the certification scheme, Annex D.
Correct communication of the label is not always easy and RPP has set the right base for communication in a document. The document for the communication of RPP when using the label or the logo is translated in 4 languages and can be downloaded below:
