LEAF Marque Standard v14.1.
The new version of the LEAF Marque Standard has been published and it is now effective (commenced 1st of January 2017). The original version (14.0) has been revised.
Please note that the definitive version for all inspections from 1 January 2017 is version 14.1.
Revising the LEAF Marque Standard provides the opportunity to continually improve the Standard based on experience gained, lessons learned, and input provided during the implementation of the previous Standards (v13.0 and earlier). In addition, as a Full Member of the ISEAL Alliance, LEAF Marque is committed to revising the Standard taking into account feedback during stakeholder consultation.
The first public consultation for v14.0 was in March/April 2016. The second public consultation was in June/July 2016.
LEAF Marque is very grateful to all those involved in the continual development of the LEAF Marque Standard. In particular, we would like to thank the LEAF Marque Technical Advisory Committee.
Following these consultations and some final revision we are proud to announce that the latest English version of the Standard can be found here.
The LEAF Marque Standard has been updated in terms of the style and design and 1 CP (1.12) has been upgraded to Essential (E) previously CFP.
There are 6 new Control Points – 4 around the LEAF Marque Chain of Custody (1.18 – 1.21); 1 on energy optimisation (6.4) and 1 on recording on-farm habitats (8.26).
The LEAF Marque Standard v14.1 is available in French, Spanish and Italian and they are published below. The English version of the Standard is the definitive version and therefore any issues of interpretation from other translations need to be referred to the English version.
