ISCC Voluntary Add-Ons
Additionally to the core requirements of ISCC PLUS, interested parties can choose from a set of voluntary add-ons. These add-ons are modules that either apply to the agricultural production area or to the whole supply chain:
Add-on 202-03 – SAI Gold
ISCC PLUS has been determined equivalent to the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) FSA Silver level. To fulfil the requirements of the SAI FSA Gold level, a certain set of ISCC “minor must” criteria has to be fulfilled.
Add-on 205-01 – GHG Emission Requirements
Calculation methodology and verification of greenhouse gas emissions along the supply chain, including biomass production, conversion as well as transport and distribution.
Add-on 205-02 – Consumables
Calculation methodology of the amount of all relevant consumables (e.g. water, fuels, electricity) along the supply chain, including biomass production, conversion as well as transport and distribution.
Add-on 205-3 – Non GMO food/ feed
Requirements for the certification of crops not containing genetically modified organisms or for downstream Non GMO raw materials for the food and feed markets.
Add-on 205-04 – Non GMO technical markets
Requirements for the certification of crops claiming not to contain genetically modified organisms for technical markets.
Requirements for the resource-efficient conversion of sustainable substrates into electricity and heat, the minimization of climate relevant emissions and unused heat energy as well as the utilization of substrates of regional origin.
Add-on 202-04: Food Security Add-on – Food Security Standard
Food Security Standard (FSS) has been adopted by ISCC as the ISCC Food Security Add-On. The ISCC Food Security Add-On further highlights the importance of social sustainability in agricultural production. It provides certification that demonstrates compliance with national due diligence and internationally recognized principles.
