Indicators & Guidance

Understanding and fulfilling the auditor's requirements.

RSB Compliance Indicators and Guidance on Principles & Criteria help operators to understand what evidence will be evaluated by an auditor. Although not compulsory, they help operators understand the significance of the minimum and progress requirements under each of the 12 RSB Principles.

RSB Compliance Indicators

An operator may decide to use other proofs of compliance in agreement with the auditor. However, it is strongly advised to use the RSB Compliance Indicators for guidance towards compliance with the RSB Principles & Criteria.
