The mass balance system makes it possible to mix palm oil certified by RSPO or not certified at every stage of the chain supply provided that the quantities company totals are controlled. Supply chain requirements The basis of the chain requirements supply for mass balance will consist of the concordance between the quantity of raw material of the purchased RSPO and the quantity of RSPO raw material sold. This includes the control of purchases and sales of palm oil and its derivatives certified by the RSPO which will be independently verified. There will be no requirement for separate storage or control of production process.
