Global Stakeholders Invited to Participate in a Consultation on the RSB Book & Claim Manual
The RSB invites interested parties from the aviation and other sectors to participate in an official stakeholder consultation on the RSB Book & Claim manual.
The consultation, which runs until Friday 25 February 2022, will provide the RSB with valuable input to ensure the development of a robust, credible procedure for the transfer of a certified product’s sustainability characteristics via book & claim.

What is book & claim?
Book & Claim is a chain of custody model that allows the physical product to be decoupled from its specific sustainability characteristics (i.e., GHG intensity) and these characteristics to be transferred as a credit through a dedicated registry.
In close collaboration with stakeholders and industry experts, RSB has developed a Book & Claim certification approach that is currently being piloted for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) transactions.
The rules supporting this approach are defined in the RSB Book & Claim Manual, which sets out the requirements for companies to register, transfer and retire credits in the RSB Book & Claim System.

A meeting to discuss the preliminary results of this public stakeholder consultation and to receive further feedback will take place on Wednesday 9 March 2022 and will be open to RSB members only.
All feedback will be reviewed by the RSB Secretariat during the first quarter of 2022, with a revised version of the RSB Book & Claim Manual scheduled to be published early in the second quarter of 2022.
