Certification to the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Crops and Sugar Beet Standards
Specialist Certification Bodies independently verify that producers are adhering to the published standards. The Red Tractor Farm Assurance Crops & Sugar Beet standards are licensed to Certification Bodies accredited to EN45011. Participating producers are then assessed and certified against the standards.
NSF-CMi Certification, PAI Ltd, SAI Global and SFQC operate the certification system for the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Crops & Sugar Beet standards on behalf of the Scheme.
The Scheme does not carry out any routine assessment or certification activities of its own. Through the Certification Bodies all members are subject to routine surveillance assessments and random audits. Red Tractor Assurance regularly reviews the performance of all Certification Bodies to ensure they are operating in accordance with the scheme procedures correctly and consistently.
