Scheme changes GMP+ FRA module

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Updates in the requirements for the standards regarding: GMP+ MI101 / MI 5.1 Production and trade of RTRS soy, GMP+ MI105 / MI 5.4 GMO Controlled and GMP+ F 0.3 Scopes for certification

The GMP+ Community together with the GMP+ Committees implemented changes in two standards within our GMP+ Feed Responsibility Assurance (FRA) module. These changes mainly concern corrections, better explanation of the documents and more aligned with the day to day needs of participants.

GMP+ MI101 / MI 5.1 Production and trade of RTRS soy

All RTRS certified companies must register the traded volumes of RTRS physical material (segregated and mass balance soy). The objective of this requirement is for RTRS to have insight in volumes traded RTRS soy by certified links in the ‘chain of custody’. All purchases of RTRS certified material, credits or physical material, must be registered on the online Trading Platform on the website of RTRS. This requirement is now also included in the GMP+ MI101 / MI 5.1 standard and applicable for all GMP+ certified companies.

GMP+ MI105 / MI 5.4 GMO Controlled

The standard is updated to include:

- the changes in the new VLOG standard (version 20.02)
- the results of the mutual recognition between GMP+ International and Oqualim-STNO
- several clarifications of existing requirements based on input received from the GMP+ Community.

F 0.3 Scopes for certification

The document is updated as an effect of the changes in the MI 5.4 GMO Controlled & GMP+ MI105 GMO Controlled.
