ISCC sustainability certifications
Now as a further step, we’ve expanded our ISCC sustainability certification to barley, wheat, lupins and oats through the ISCC PLUS accreditation, with several shipments of sustainable-certified barley and oats already shipped to customers. There are multiple advantages for CBH to participate in the ISCC PLUS program - we have a 100% audit success rate, growers are familiar with the system, and there is international recognition of ISCC as a global benchmarked sustainability accreditation system. If growers are already participating in the ISCC EU program, they are automatically certified for ISCC PLUS for their other commodities.
Looking into the future, we see demand for sustainable products only increasing, and so we are very motivated to identify and develop new market opportunities for WA grain to ensure the long-term success of Western Australian farming.
We have achieved certification in ISCC EU and ISCC PLUS, to maintain market access and develop new market opportunities.
To participate, growers need to:
- Familiarise themselves with the requirements of ISCC and be satisfied that their farm is compliant
- Complete the ISCC Self-Declaration that is available on LoadNet, or can be downloaded from this page
- Growers completing the ISCC Self-Declaration should understand that they may be selected for audit by the appointed auditor of an ISCC recognised certification body. CBH has developed an ISCC Grower Self-Assessment Form which can be used by growers to help them demonstrate compliance with ISCC requirements
- Be willing to participate in an audit if selected
To assist growers in understanding these new requirements we have developed some additional resources for participating growers:
CBH ISCC Grower Self-Assessment FormCBH has developed a Self-Assessment which you can complete and upload into LoadNet. The form will assist you to demonstrate compliance if selected for audit. Alternatively, you can use your own farm management plan if you are comfortable it will demonstrate your compliance.Download the Form
CBH ISCC Audit ChecklistIf selected for an audit, the auditor will review key documentation and do a walk around the farm to check for compliance with key ISCC requirements. Use our ISCC Audit Checklist to get your documentation in order before your audit.Download Checklist
