The RSB welcomes public comment as part of the formal process for the continued development of our Standard.

As new technology, research and sustainability issues emerge, the RSB works with its stakeholders and members to adapt the RSB Standard.

The RSB is a full member of the ISEAL alliance and has a formal process for how the RSB Standard is developed, adapted and reviewed by its members. All major modifications require a formal public consultation, in line with the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice, and approval by RSB members.
