The Rainforest Alliance has published the key documents of its 2020 Certification Program. The 2020 Sustainable Agriculture Standard includes Farm and Supply Chain Requirements. From September 2020 onwards, we will start the certification program’s roll-out, when we will inform all stakeholders about the principles and requirements of the Sustainable Agriculture Standard.
As an integral part of the roll-out process, we are developing a training program to ensure a smooth transition process and a successful implementation. The training program is for certificate holders, Rainforest Alliance staff, and Certification Bodies. The training program consists of a combination of e-courses and online sessions.
First Phase Roll-out: August 2020- July 2021
During this phase, the Rainforest Alliance will ensure that all relevant stakeholders are informed and can develop the required skills to implement and audit the Sustainable Agriculture Standard.
The training package will focus on:
- Introducing the standard’s requirements and its principles
- Sharing expectations when implementing the standard and its assurance system
- Guiding stakeholders to further information and material related to the implementation of the standard and its assurance system
More information about our training schedule and registration process will be shared later this year.
