Together with the Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS), GMP+ International has developed the new standard GMP+ B101 Production and trade of responsible soy. With this standard, companies that are part of the trade and production chain (chain of custody) can have themselves certified for the processing and / or sale of RTSR responsible soy. The growers of soy must be certified in accordance with the RTRS Standard for Responsible Soy Production.
Within this standard, the following scopes have been defined:
RTRS Mass Balance system
If the participant uses the mass balance system, the company can produce and/or trade both non-responsible soy and responsible soy. Using a material accounting system the participant must ensure that no more responsible soy is sold in relation to what is bought. This system does not ensure that the participant sells in a specific batch, soy that is RTRS certified.
RTRS Segregated system
If the participant uses the segregated system, the responsible soy is kept physically separate from non-responsible soy throughout the entire supply chain.
The GMP+ B101 Production and trade of responsible soy is certifiable from March 1st 2013.
