SBP Governance Transition Process: Consultation Launched

SBP has today launched a consultation as part of its governance transition process.

Following a comprehensive review of 12 certification systems in operation across a variety of sectors a proposal for the new governance arrangements for SBP has been developed. The overriding objective is to transform SBP into a multi-stakeholder governed organisation. Further details on the governance transition process may be viewed here.

As part of the process we are now consulting on the key documents that will underpin the new structure and define the core of SBP’s future governance arrangements.

Thomas Dalsgaard, Chairman of SBP, commented: “We are at an important stage in the development of the certification system. Our plan to transform SBP into a multi-stakeholder organisation is gaining momentum and the new arrangements are on schedule for implementation in early 2019.

“This consultation is fundamental to the new arrangements and we encourage interested parties to take part and help to shape SBP’s future”.

The documents on which we are seeking stakeholders’ views can be found at: Interested parties are invited to provide written comments and feedback using the templates provided by 31 January 2018. All responses should be sent to
