Tools & Guidance for the RSB Standard

RSB has developed tools and guidelines to assist operators in meeting the requirements of the Standard.

In order to support and guide you through the compliance process, the RSB developed specific tools and guidelines that outline the activities and practices to be implemented by operators to meet RSB requirements.

RSB guidelines are particularly helpful through the impact assessment process required under RSB Principle 2. Following the completion of the screening exercise, you may be required to conduct in-depth impact assessment on certain aspects such as soil, water or food security.

Case Study

RSB Initiates Integrated Pest Management Coalition With Other ISEAL Members

Through certification, the RSB has been contributing to the reduction of pesticide use and the elimination of the most hazardous pesticides for many years. Together with 7 other ISEAL members, RSB has been working on a common approach to pesticide reduction. In May 2016, this coalition came together and signed a historic agreement that confirms efforts to work together towards the improvement of knowledge and sustainable use of pesticides, including the elimination of Highly Hazardous Pesticides.
