An additional certification for non-energy products derived from biomass.

The RSB Standard enables producers and users of biomass, biochemicals and bioproducts to receive RSB certification to demonstrate responsible practices throughout the supply chain.

It applies to producers of biomass-based products of a variety of types, including, but not limited to, biochemicals, bioplastics, compostable/biodegradable tableware, cosmetics, nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals, and feed.


We are mid-way through the revision of the RSB Standard for Bio-based (and Advanced) Products, which is a supplement to the RSB Principles & Criteria. It enables producers of bio-products to receive RSB certification and demonstrate responsible practices throughout the supply chain.

With excellent input from participants of the RSB General Assembly 2017 in Vancouver, the RSB Secretariat drafted the revised standard which is now undergoing another round of public and membership consultation.

The proposed revisions include:

  • A new section on GHG emission reduction
  • Clarifications on bio-based (carbon) content thresholds
  • The option to use a mass balance system for the bio-based input to processes and supply chains
  • Specifications for communication and claims

Please see more information about the revision process here.
