What are the impacts for mills that don’t sign the commitment letter?

20th July 2021

EU RED II requirements apply from 1 July 2021. Any certified members who wish to participate in EU RED must implement and comply with EU RED regulation. To minimise the administrative burden linked to additional audits, Bonsucro requests that certified members sign a commitment letter. If members do not wish to sign the letter, the matter will be handled by their certification body who is responsible for their certification. Once they have signed the letter, the certification body will decide what checks need to be done before updating the scope of their clients from EU RED I to EU RED II. The EU has indicated not expecting additional audits, but the final decision rest with the certification body.
