Traceability for end-of-life products, by-products and residues in
the case of back-to-back shipments
20 October 2017
The RSB Standard for end-of-life products, by-products and residues (RSB-STD-01-010) requires compliance with the RSB chain of custody standard from the first collector onward and specifies documents to be available for verification. RSB-PRO-70-001 requires auditors to audit a sample of points of origin and first collectors delivering more than 10 metric tons per month in order to check the plausibility of the mass balance records and the conformity of the requirements of RSB-STD-01-010. As an alternative to an on-site audit, RSB-PRO-70-001 specifies documents in order to conduct audits desk-based.
In the case of direct deliveries (back-to-back shipments) from points of origin to the participating operator are there alternatives to an on-site audit of first collectors and points of origin and are alternative evidence documents eligible in the case that the documents specified in RSB-PRO70-001 and RSB-STD-01-010 (i.e. quarterly production records, mass balance records) are not available?
