ISCC Certification System

Providing sustainable canola for Europe

ISCC Overview

The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Scheme is one of two schemes suitable for Australian exporters to adopt in order to supply certified canola to Europe for the intended use in biodiesel.

The objectives of ISCC are the establishment of an internationally oriented, practical and transparent system for the certification of biomass and bioenergy. ISCC is oriented towards reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions, sustainable use of land, protection of natural biospheres and social sustainability.

A core aspect of the ISCC Scheme is the emphasis placed on on-farm audits to validate the sustainabilty credentials of a grower who provides certified canola under this scheme.

The AOF has prepared a checklist (called the Audit-Ready Guide) to assist growers who may be selected to participate in an audit.
