Situation in Ukraine
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
ISCC is following the events unfolding in Ukraine with great concern and sadness. ISCC condemns the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. It is hard to comprehend the challenges our system users, auditors, and their families in the region face.
To provide a solution for ISCC certified economic operators in Ukraine who would need to renew their certificate during this challenging situation, ISCC has decided to implement with immediate effect the following exceptional measures:
- Recertification audits for economic operators in Ukraine may generally be conducted remotely if it is not possible to conduct audits on-site.
- If, due to the current situation, a remote recertification audit for economic operators in Ukraine is not possible at all or it is not possible to cover all necessary requirements, an ISCC certificate may still be issued by the certification body under the condition that the audit or the missing parts of the audit are conducted as soon as the situation in Ukraine allows.
Our thoughts are with those affected by this conflict and we hope for a peaceful resolution without further loss of human lives.
Your ISCC Team
