Guidance for Implementing the Standard

As accompanying guidance to the Sustainable Beef Processing Standard, the CRSB has developed an Interpretive Guide to help you implement the indicators of the standard in your operation.  The Guide includes resources and additional information about what the Certification Bodies will be looking for during certification, and how to make improvements in the sustainability of your operation. 

In the Guide, under each indicator you will find:

  • Key definitions
  • An explanation of the goal of the indicator
  • Key questions to address when preparing for an audit
  • Guidance and resources to meet the requirements of the indicator
  • Recommendations to increase the scoring within the indicator

Interpretive Guide: Beef Processing


The Guide will look something like this for each indicator.
