SBP has today published the pre-approval drafts of Instruction Documents 5A, 5B and 5C v1.1 for consultation. Interested parties are invited to provide written comments on the drafts.
Following the consultation on draft Instruction Document 5A v1.1 earlier in the year, SBP has been working on revising the document to bring it in line with the developing regulatory requirements and the SBP Data Transfer System that will become mandatory for SBP Certificate Holders from 1 October 2016. To help bring clarity to the multiple functions that the DTS will perform, Instruction Document 5A has been split into three Instruction Documents – 5A, 5B and 5C – each covering a different topic. In addition, three templates have been developed to ensure consistency in data collection and communication.
The draft Instruction Documents 5A, 5B and 5C v1.1 can be viewed at: http://www.sustainablebiomasspartnership.org/documents/consultation-documents/live-consultations. Interested parties are asked to tabulate their responses into three columns headed: Section Number; Comments; and Suggested Solution, and to clearly state to which document or template the comments refer. All written comments should be sent to Melanie Wedgbury at firstname.lastname@example.org by the close of business on Friday, 23 September 2016.
