REAL reviews, updates and publishes a revised version of its Compost Certification Scheme rules as agreed in the procedures. For further information please visit the information/governance section of the web site.
Scheme Rules version 7
This latest version of our scheme rules is Issue 1 Revision 7, which was issued on 31st July 2014 and is downloadable from HERE. The new Scheme Rules supersedes the old version from 1st October 2014.
Within the interim period, between 1st August and 1st October 2014, the participants of CCS must comply with the Scheme Rules v6 (old version).
REAL has sought to provide a suitable and robust scheme framework given the continued diversification of the composting industry and increased participation in this scheme. The rules have been reviewed and endorsed by REAL's Compost Certification Technical Advisory Committee.
