Thailand National Interpretation Public Consultation 12 March 2021 - 11 May 2021

The RSPO National Interpretation (NI) draft of the 2018 RSPO Principles and Criteria (P&C) for Thailand has been developed by participatory, multi-stakeholder groups, which include representation from the relevant RSPO membership sectors. The formation of a National Interpretation Working Group (NIWG) for Thailand ensures that all required procedures, communications, and actions taken have been properly documented and recorded.

The RSPO Thailand National Interpretation (Thailand NI) has been drafted through a comprehensive development process, including consultations with relevant stakeholder groups to ensure the NI accurately reflects the nature of the oil palm industry in Thailand, particularly, national legislation and customs in the country, whilst maintaining, and in some cases, strengthening the integrity of the RSPO requirements for certification.

We are now calling for comments on the Thailand NI draft through a public consultation period of 60 days, from 12 March to 11 May 2021. The draft, available in English and Thai versions, can be downloaded from the RSPO website.

You are invited to submit your questions, comments, and/or observations on the draft in the comment template below. All comments must be submitted to the TH-NITF Secretariat Team for the 2018 P&C at rspo.thailand.nitf@gmail.com by close of business on 11 May 2021.
