General Documents

General documents in the RSB Standard include procedures for auditors and certification bodies, for managing grievances, for making updates to the RSB Standard and more. This category also includes glossaries and specific adaptations of the Standard.

Impact Assessment Guidelines

The RSB Standard includes several normative documents, which describe the requirements to be met by operators for a sustainable and traceable production of biomass and its derivatives. In order to support and guide our members through the compliance process, the RSB has developed specific tools and guidelines which describe the activities to be undertaken and practices to be implemented by operators to meet RSB requirements. The RSB Guidelines are particularly helpful through the impact assessment process required under RSB Principle 2. Following the completion of the screening exercise, you may be required to conduct in-depth impact assessment on certain aspects such as soil, water or food security.
