Variance Requests

The ASC Farm Standards, Audit Manuals and the ASC Certification and Accreditation Requirements have been developed with the intention to cover most real-life scenarios in farming practises. Nevertheless, situations occur where these documents don't provide a solution. For this reason, accredited certifiers ("CABs") can submit a variance request (VR) on the content of theses documents seeking interpretation guidance or how to address situations not covered.

Once a variance request (VR) is received by ASC, it is discussed within the VR-committee. This committee consists out of ASCs' Standards Director, Chair of the ASC Technical Advisory Group, Chair of the ASC Supervisory Board and ASCs' CEO.

How to read this page:

  • An overview on the status of VR's and decisions on these VR's can be found via the hyperlink "Variance request - Overview sheet" below.
  • The VR-number mentioned in column L of the overview file is the identification number for each full document listed below.
  • If a CAB encounters an identical situation for which an earlier VR has been submitted and approved, then the CAB can refer to this earlier VR in the audit report for its decision.
