This platform is a searchable database of all Variance Requests (VR’s) and Questions for Interpretation (QA’s) submitted to the ASC. Variance Requests are publicly available to improve consistency in understanding and application of ASC standards and Certification & Accreditation Requirements (CAR).
ASC has revised its Variance Request process and developed a normative Variance Request procedure to maintain its transparency and accountability ethos.
The Variance Request procedure allows for stakeholders to submit feedback to VR’s related to the ASC species’ standards. To do so, please follow the steps outlined in The Variance Request Procedure.
