RSPO eTrace is an online system to trace the physical trade of RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). It covers only the physical trading of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) and its fractions (you can find RSPO palm oil supply chain models here).
Transparency, disclosure, clarity and efficiency in the physical trading of CSPO and its fractions along the supply chain are imperative to fulfill the RSPO’s vision of making sustainable palm oil the norm. Members play a key role in ensuring this is achieved by participating, contributing and administrating the RSPO transactions.
RSPO eTrace is a result of extensive and intensive discussions amongst members of the RSPO’s Trade & Traceability Standing Committee on how to ensure transparency, disclosure, clarity and efficiency in the physical trading of CSPO and its fractions along the supply chain. The online platform for both the existing and new system is technically developed and managed by UTZ CERTIFIED.

Certifying Bodies will be required to include this process into their audits. After every audit, the Certification Body has to upload the certificate and other related documents in eTrace and also include the levels to which the certified company is allowed to trade.
