RSB EU RED Procedure for Traceability (Chain of Custody)

Reference code: RSB-PRO-11-001-20-001 Version: 3.7 Date: June 2021

RSB's EU RED Procedure for Traceability aims to ensure that Participating Operators put in place a robust and transparent chain of custody system that provides traceability for the RSB EU RED and/or EU RED Certified Material (e.g. biomass, chemical intermediaries, biofuel, etc.) acquired from and/or delivered to other operators in the supply chain. This standard also aims to ensure that sustainability claims based on compliance with RSB standards only accompany material that is acquired, handled, and forwarded by RSB certified operators according to the requirements included in this standard.


RSB EU RED Standard for Advanced Fuels

Reference code: RSB-STD-11-001-01-010 Version: 2.1 Date: March 2022

The RSB EU RED Standard for Advanced Fuels aims to ensure that the use of waste and residues for biofuel production is appropriately addressed within the RSB certification system, by ensuring that negative environmental, social and economic impacts related to their use are minimised and that the requirements upon participating operators are appropriate. An additional intent is that waste and residues are verified back to their origin, as per EC Communication Ares(2014)3359578 from 10/10/2014.


RSB Principles & Criteria

Reference code: RSB-STD-01-001 Version: 3 Date: November 2016

The RSB Principles & Criteria is the core document of the RSB Standard sets out the general requirements for operations producing, converting and processing biomass, advanced fuels, products and biomaterials. This standard applies to all operators taking part in the RSB certification system as individual or groups of economic operators (e.g. a group of farmers), with the exception of traders who are not involved in the production, processing or transformation of biomass or any of its derivatives.


RSB Procedure for Communication and Claims

Reference code: RSB-PRO-50-001 Version: 3.5 Date: November 2020

RSB's Procedure on Communications and Claims sets out the requirements Participating Operators must meet when using the RSB trademarks (e.g. RSB name, RSB logo, RSB Strapline, RSB on-product label) and compliance claims in association with certified products (“product-related claims”), as well as in general communication.


RSB Procedure for Participating Operators

Reference code: RSB-PRO-30-001 Version: 3.3 Date: June 2021

The RSB Standard for Participating Operators sets out the conditions operators shall meet when taking part in RSB certification systems. Operators taking part in RSB certification systems are referred to as ‘Participating Operators’ (POs). POs have control over, and take full responsibility for, all operations, processes, activities and sites in connection with putting RSB standards in place at all times. This standard also describes the role of the RSB Secretariat.


RSB Procedure for Risk Management

RSB's Procedure for Risk Management aims to make sure that Participating Operators identify, evaluate, mitigate and monitor the risk(s) related to their operations while putting in place RSB standards and procedures.


RSB Standard for EU Market Access

Reference code: RSB-STD-11-001 Version: 4.0 Date: June 2021

The objective of RSB’s Standard for EU Market Access [RSB-STD-11-001], is to guarantee compliance of the RSB EU RED certification system with the EU sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids, in order to ensure recognition of the RSB EU RED certification system by the EU as proof of compliance of biofuels and bioliquids with the EU sustainability criteria as defined in Directive 2018/2001/EU on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (EU RED) and in the Fuel Quality Directive (2009/30/EC). This version 4.0 of the standard takes into account all changes in this regulatory context as laid down in European Union’s Directive 2015/1513 and 2018/2001.
