Public Notifications & Stakeholder Feedback

Rainforest Alliance auditing and certification services are managed and implemented within its RA-Cert business unit. All related personnel responsible for audit design, evaluation, and certification/verification decisions are under the purview of the RA-Cert unit. For our full policy on independence in certification click here. RA-Cert as a distinct business unit is one of several authorized certifiers conducting audits against the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture Standards. Please refer to the SAS - Get Certified if you would like a complete list of certifiers including approved countries.

Stakeholder feedback is an integral part of our certification service. All interested parties are invited to submit comments on farms currently undergoing the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ certification process with RA-Cert, and to review Public Summary reports for completed audits on agriculture enterprises that have been certified by RA-Cert.
