The Consultation Process in Verification

Standard Revision Work-programme

In 2011, the Union for Ethical BioTrade is undergoing a formal revision of the UEBT Standard. Download the work-plan here.

ISEAL Code of Good Practice

The Union for Ethical BioTrade is a Full Member of the ISEAL Alliance, the global association for social and environmental standards systems.

The Union for Ethical BioTrade’s Standard is designed in accordance with the requirements for developing Standards as stipulated by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labelling Alliance (ISEAL). These requirements include the need to carry out consultations open to all stakeholders and decision-making mechanisms that respect the balance between different interest groups. They also require the need to periodically review the standards (at least every five years).

In line with these requirements, UEBT holds two rounds of consultations. A second phase of the first round of the consultation process is now open.
