Trading Members commit to the Ethical BioTrade Standard. This standard guides members towards compliance with the Principles and Criteria of Ethical BioTrade.
The UEBT Verification System monitors members' respect of their membership obligations such as conformity with the Minimum Indicators, and the adherence to work-plans aiming to achieve compliance with the Principles and Criteria of Ethical BioTrade.
Once members comply with the UEBT Standard, membership will be conditional upon continuous compliance with the Standard. A third-party audit should verify this ongoing compliance every 3 years, while the organisation will report annually in the intermediary years.
Members will also be expected to show continuous improvement, which they will be able to measure using a set of impact indicators developed by UEBT.
