REAL's Compost Certification Scheme template documents
The templates downloadable from this webpage have been developed by Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd. to assist compost producers in implementing the quality management system (QMS) required for achieving certification.
The templates are numbered for ease of setting up a complete filing system for Quality Management System documents.
Document 00 'Content and instructions' shows which documents should be used if seeking certification to PAS 100 and the Compost Quality Protocol and which documents should be used if seek certification to 'PAS 100 only'.
You can download each template below or, alternatively, you can request a zipped version of the pack from REAL by email ( email@example.com).
