RSB Guidance: RG-2020-01 Reactive Guidance on EU RED Claims: Outsourcing industrial processes to operators not included in the RSB EU RED certification scope
An RSB EU participating operator is owner of RSB EU certified feedstock and intends to outsource the conversion of feedstock into a product while keeping the ownership of the material.
The outsourcing is based on an agreement with an industrial unit, which is independent from the RSB EU RED participating operator. This industrial unit is not within the RSB EU certificate scope of the participating operator, nor does it hold an own RSB EU certificate. However, it is certified by another EU recognized voluntary scheme.
Under which conditions is the claim “EU RED compliant” allowed for the RSB EU feedstock processed by that independent industrial unit?
