3 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Introduction UTZ ERTIIED is a worldwide certification program that sets standards for responsible production and sourcing of agricultural commodities. UTZ, which means "good" in a Maya language, gives the assurance of professional, social and environmental quality in production practices that brands and consumers expect. UTZ ERTIIED products have been produced according to the criteria of the UTZ ERTIIED odes of onduct. With an UTZ ERTIIED certificate, Rooibos producers can demonstrate good agricultural practices, efficient farm management and responsible production. or Rooibos traders and packers the UTZ ERTIIED certificate is an assurance of responsible Rooibos production which they can use in their sourcing decisions. The UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos is an internationally recognized set of criteria for economic, social and environmentally responsible production. It is based on the international ILO onventions and includes the principles of good agricultural practices. Additionally, there is a guidance document available that further explains how to implement and interpret the criteria of the ode of onduct. This is the first official version of the UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos. The code development process has been carried out through a multi stakeholder approach, involving consultation and research, public consultation rounds, field testing, local workshops and consultation of local experts. UTZ ERTIIED strives to continuously improve the ode of onduct through regular revisions in close cooperation with all stakeholders. UTZ ERTIIED has the overall authority for the issuing and amendment of the requirements stated in this document. Acknowledgements This ode of onduct was developed in close collaboration with the Right Rooibos initiative. The Right Rooibos Standard has been an important resource in the development process and overlapping criteria have been streamlined as much as possible. UTZ ERTIIED thanks Gerhard Pretorius, manager of the Right Rooibos program for his expert advice and is committed to further collaboration in the future. UTZ ERTIIED also thanks all the participants of the Stakeholder onsultation Workshop in lanwilliam, South Africa in July 2010, everyone who commented during the public consultation round and all persons involved in the pilot projects, for giving us valuable feedback. inally, we thank our project partners and colleagues in the field for helping us to create a balanced, practical and robust ode of onduct that we hope will be a tool for more sustainable Rooibosproduction. Special thanks to Johan Brand for his technical advice, and Lisa Ryser from Sandra Kruger and Associates for her advice on social aspects and crucial work during the consultation, implementation and piloting of the code.

4 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Scope The UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing applies to all processors who process and sell Rooibos as UTZ ERTIIED. or producers/farms that produce certified Rooibos, the ode of onduct for Rooibos Production applies. Although these are two separate checklists, production and processing can be included in the same certificate if they fall under the same management. This ode is applicable to all Rooibos that is harvested and processed from the Rooibos bush (Aspalathus linearis) including wild and cultivated Rooibos. The appropriate criteria for product separation and quality control apply to all processing methods, including green Rooibos. ertification must always be carried out by a ertification Body (B) that is approved by UTZ ERTIIED (See UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ertification Protocol 1 ). A list of approved ertification Bodies can be found on the UTZ ERTIIED website. ertification options When the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct speaks of "certificate holder", it refers to the entity that is responsible for implementing and monitoring the requirements of the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct. The certificate holder can be: an individual producer/estate, a group of smallholders organized in an association or cooperative (or another entity such as a estate or factory that buys the product from the producers and organizes a group certification, i.e. sets up an Internal ontrol System and trains the producers according to the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct) or a group of centrally managed estates. This means the certificate can be obtained by: 1. Individual certification = an individual producer/estate. An individual producer can apply for certification against the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct. The individual producer is responsible for the compliance of the farm. The producer has to carry out an annual self- and the ertification Body (B) will perform an annual audit against the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct. In this case the compliant producer is the same entity as the certificate holder. 1 Latest version always applicable and available at UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside Page 4 of 27

5 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary Group certification = a group of organized smallholders. A group of organized smallholders can also apply for certification against the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct. This is called a group certification. The certificate holder can be either the producer organization itself or another entity organizing the group of producers. In case of group certification, the certificate holder has to implement an Internal ontrol System (IS). An Internal ontrol System is a documented quality management system that manages several aspects of the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct and controls the producer s fulfillment of the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct requirements according to the internally defined procedures. 3. Multi-site certification = a group of estates under one central management. If one company manages several locations, which means that these locations fall under one central management, a multi-site certification can take place. A multi-site organization is defined as an organization having an identified central location at which activities are managed and sites at which such activities are fully or partially carried out. All these sites can be covered by one certificate. The B annually audits all sites and clearly specifies on the certificate which production locations are included in the certificate. There is evidence that proves that the central management owns or is contracted to manage these production areas. Examples of different types of certification Examples of different types of certification and criteria for the IS can be found in an annex to the ertification Protocol.

7 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 ontinuous improvement structure When developing the standard, UTZ ERTIIED evaluated how best to include a risk based approach as well as continuous improvement in the ertification Program. Below you can find an overview on how continuous improvement is built into the structure of the ode: hapter 1 ontrol point 1 ontrol point 2 ontrol point 3 ontrol point 4 ontrol point 5 ontrol point 6 ontrol point 7 heck at level of: () - actory () - ertificate holder yr1 yr2 yr3 yr4 required compliances green=mandatory # yr1 # yr2 # yr3 # yr4 The chapters of the ode of onduct are thematically grouped in three parts. o Part 1 (chapters 1-2) covers traceability and general management issues. o Part 2 (chapters 3 9) covers good agricultural and farm practices. o Part 3 (chapters 10-11) covers specific social and environmental aspects. Each chapter consists of criteria and control points (indicators). The auditor checks the control points. The control points are in general applicable to the whole production system. However to make it easier for the auditor to check, the column level of indicates on what level to assess the control point. The control points need to be checked either on certificate holder/central () level or actory() level. The audit checklist clearly indicates on what level the control points need to be checked. There are two types of control points: o mandatory control points (shaded in green). o additional control points (not shaded). Separate columns indicate when points become mandatory in to 4. The green boxes indicate which control points need to be complied within each year. The certificate holder can also see which control points will become mandatory in the next year. When compliance is reached, the box for that specific year is ticked in this column. rom to the number of mandatory control points increases. At the end of each chapter it is specified how many control points are mandatory for that specific year. UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside Page 7 of 27

8 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 If a mandatory control point is not applicable, this is indicated in the comments column in the checklist format (separate document). The number of mandatory control points that are not applicable for certification need to be indicated in the calculation section at the end of the chapter, and can be deducted from the total number of mandatory points. Additional control points: Besides the mandatory control points, a defined number of additional control points (not shaded) have to be complied with every year. If an additional control point is not applicable, it can NOT be counted in or deducted from the number of additional compliant control points. The number of additional points to comply with is specified at the bottom of each chapter. ompliance is reached if the certificate holder has fulfilled all the mandatory control points, plus the defined number of additional control points (non-mandatory points in that specific year) per chapter. It is not possible to compensate a low score in one chapter with a high score in another. Example: alculation of mandatory and additional control points. Example situation: an estate in its third year of certification. TOTAL MANDATORY POINTS PER YEAR - HAPTER NUMBER O MANDATORY ONTROL POINTS OMPLIED WITH 31 NUMBER O MANDATORY ONTROL POINTS NOT APPLIABLE 5 Note: The sum has to equal the total number of mandatory points for this chapter TOTAL ADDITIONAL ONTROL POINTS REQUIRED OR ERTIIATION NUMBER O ADDITIONAL POINTS OMPLIED WITH 2 Note: If an additional control point is not applicable, it cannot be counted in - or deducted from - the total number of additional control points required for certification. In this example the estate complies with all applicable mandatory control points and complies with (or in this case even exceeds) the required number of additional control points. This means that the estate is compliant with chapter 3-8 of the ode of onduct. If the estate likewise complies with the mandatory control points and required number of additional control points in the other chapters of the code of conduct, then it can be certified.

9 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Additional documents relevant for this ode of onduct It is the intention of UTZ ERTIIED to formulate the control points as precisely as possible. Several additional documents are available or will be developed to help interpret and implement the control points. An important additional document is the Guidance comments. The Guidance comments give extra explanation on how to comply with or interpret the control point. The guidance document is structured in the code format, this means it is clear which control point the comment refers too. The Guidance comments will be updated on a more frequent basis than the ode of onduct itself. Other important and useful documents include: The UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ertification Protocol. This document describes the procedures both the certificate holder and the certification body have to follow in order to become certified. The UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct checklist. The checklist is very similar to the ode of onduct. It lists all the control points but has an additional column for comments. This is useful for the certification body during the audit, but also for the certificate holder to carry out the self-. The comment column is useful for notes, for example justifications as to why a specific control point is not applicable. Record keeping An important element of the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct is record keeping. Record keeping is important because it gives the producer more insight into the whole production process. It also enables the external auditor to verify that the producer is complying with the requirements of the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct. In case of group certification, records can in most cases be kept at the level of the Internal ontrol System (IS). Record keeping requirements for first audit or a first audit, the external auditor will verify ALL the requested records in this ode of onduct from 3 months prior to the audit date. The certificate holder determines if he/she is ready for the external audit based on the outcome of a self-. In case of group certification, the certificate holder determines if the producers are ready based on a self-. The certificate holder must send the documents of the self- to the B before the audit can take place. The B will review the self documents to determine if the auditor can meaningfully perform the audit. Record keeping requirements for re-certification or a re-certification the external auditor will verify all the requested records in the ode of onduct going back to the previous audit.

10 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Applicability of control points When implementing the ode of onduct, the certificate holder must assess for each control point if it is applicable to the situation of the producer or not. If the certificate holder, for example does not use any irrigation because there is a full dependence on rainfall, these control points are not applicable to the producer s situation. The certificate holder must document the non-applicable control points plus the evidence that shows why they are not applicable. The certificate holder must always be able to show and explain to the external auditor why a control point is not applicable to the situation. The external auditor will verify that the control point is indeed not applicable to the situation of the certificate holder and clearly indicate this in the audit report.

General ontrol System 1.A.1 1.A.2 1.A.3 If the certificate holder outsources processing activities, the outsourced processing unit must ensure traceability, product identification and separation of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos. The certificate holder has a document management system in place that records: - the purchases and sales of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos, - the purchases and sales of non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos, - possible carry-over stock of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos of a previous year, - the UTZ sales announcements with unique UTZ ERTIIED number (online traceability system to be developed), - the sales invoices with the origin and indication of the UTZ ERTIIED status. The certificate holder clearly indicates the responsible person(s) in the organization for traceability, product identification and separation of Rooibos. This person or group of persons is able to demonstrate and explain the system and is accessible to others in the organization. The certificate holder clearly and visually identifies UTZ 1.A.4 ERTIIED Rooibos. A system is in place where representative lot samples of 1.A.5 Rooibos are kept to be analyzed in case of any complaint. Samples are kept for at least one year. The certificate holder keeps stock records for all processed 1.A.6 Rooibos (bulk or packed). If the certificate holder outsources processing activities, the outsourced processing unit must ensure traceability, 1.A.7 product identification and separation of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos. 1.B Identification of ertified Inputs 1.B.1 The organization operates a system for assuring, verifying, and monitoring whether UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos that is received from its suppliers, is indeed UTZ certified. The system can be based on written documents and procedures and/or an automated system. The system includes the following requirements: a. Verifying the validity of the UTZ certificate of the certified Rooibos; b. Specifying the fact that the purchase regards UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos; c. Verifying the invoices and/or documents that accompany the shipment of the Rooibos to confirm its certified status. UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside Page 11 of 27

12 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Nº ONTROL POINT 1. Identification of ertified Outputs (Note: Online traceability system is being developed- Member Portal instructions will be included in the Annex/Guidance Document) The organization documents each purchase and/or sale of UTZ Rooibos. This documentation can be done by an invoice or UTZ Sales record. The organization operates a system that allows any UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos sold by the organization to be linked to a specific sales invoice issued. The system can be based on written documents and procedures and/or an automated system. All sales invoices issued for UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos: a. Include a description of the origin of the Rooibos as indicated in the contract; b. Includes any other information that identifies the Rooibos (to the organization s preference); c. When the UTZ Rooibos is exported, the unique UTZ ERTIIED number(s) is recorded. 1.D. Retroactive laiming 1.D.1 When a shipment is claimed as UTZ ERTIIED at a later stage than the initial contract between producer and first buyer, the producer and first buyer must agree upon a premium. 2. MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, REORD KEEPING AND SEL-INSPETION 2.A Record keeping 2.A.1 2.A.2 The organization keeps appropriate records providing information about the origin, quality, and volume (weight) of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos that enters and leaves the organization. Sales invoices are kept. All the records and documents requested by this ode of onduct are up to date and accessible for the auditor. All documents and records are archived for a minimum period of two years, unless legally required for a longer period of time. 2.B Management systems and self- The certificate holder undertakes at least one self- per year against the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct, using 2.B.1 the UTZ ERTIIED checklist. This self- is documented. Subcontractors carry out an assessment (or the certificate holder does this on behalf of the subcontractor) of compliance 2.B.2 against the UTZ ERTIIED control points relevant to the services provided. The certificate holder is responsible for ensuring compliance with the applicable control points. UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside Page 12 of 27

13 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Nº ONTROL POINT 2. Accountability and transparency The UTZ ERTIIED program is intended to generate both tangible and intangible benefits for Rooibos producers. Transparency on the amount and the distribution of the tangible benefits, like the UTZ premium, is a part of responsible Rooibos production The certificate holder can show how the UTZ ERTIIED premium is distributed within its organization. The costs of operation are clearly documented. The certificate holder appoints a person whom producers and workers can file questions, ideas and complaints to. This person has to be known and accessible to the group members and workers. This person is well informed about the UTZ ERTIIED program. The certificate holder has a complaint mechanism available for all persons that want to file a complaint relating to issues of compliance with the UTZ ERTIIED ode of onduct by the certificate holder and the producers. The certificate holder adequately records, studies and follows up complaints and records the corrective actions taken. This includes complaints from the government in case of (alleged) violations of the law.

14 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Nº ONTROL POINT 3- PRODUT SEPARATION DURING PROESSING The certificate holder at all times strictly separates UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos: during storage, processing, packing and transport. arry-over stock of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos from a previous year is kept separate and clearly marked. All handling of UTZ ertified Rooibos is carried out in complete runs or lots, separately (physically or in time) from operations carried out with non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos (or any other system is used that properly prevents mixing of certified with non-certified Rooibos). 3.A Tea Receiving Area & Tea ourt (If applicable) UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is properly separated from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos in the raw material receiving area to 3.A.1 prevent mixing. There is a designated area or time for receiving UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos. The certificate holder strictly separates UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos during 3.A.2 fermentation and drying (incl. during cutting and on the tea court). 3.B Rooibos Processing Processing of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out properly, by separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to 3.B.1 prevent mixing. UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos must be a separate processing run from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos. Blending of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out properly, 3.B.2 by separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to prevent mixing. Grading of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out properly, 3.B.3 by separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to prevent mixing. Sifting of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out properly, by 3.B.4 separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to prevent mixing. Sterilization of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out 3.B.5 properly, by separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to prevent mixing. 3. Bagging and/or Bulking 3..1 Bagging and/or bulking of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos is carried out properly, by separating from non-utz ERTIIED Rooibos to prevent mixing The organization visibly identifies UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos. The organization operates a system which assures that only 3..3 bag loads containing UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos bear the UTZ ERTIIED logo. 3.D. onsumer blending (if applicable) The certificate holder operates a solid system which ensures that each lot of finished product to be sold with the UTZ 3.D.1 ERTIIED claim (name/logo) contains at least the required percentage of UTZ ERTIIED Rooibos.

16 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Nº ONTROL POINT 4. HYGIENE AND QUALITY ONTROL DURING PROESSING, PAKING AND STORAGE Good hygiene practices during post-harvest product handling are important to prevent negative effects on the final Rooibos quality and end-consumer health. The control points in this chapter apply to the owner and/or manager of the central processing and storage facilities. 4.A Risk analysis 4.A.1 4.A.2 The certificate holder conducts a product hygiene and food safety risk assessment of all processing and storage facilities. The analysis focuses on physical, chemical and microbiological contaminants. Based on the risk assessment in the above control point, the certificate holder develops, implements and documents an action plan to promote product hygiene and food safety in all processing and storage facilities. The responsible person is identified in this plan. 4.B Personal hygiene There is evidence that all workers have received basic 4.B.1 hygiene training before handling Rooibos, whether verbally or written, and are complying with them in practice. Signs with the main hygiene instructions (such as hand 4.B.2 washing after using toilets, eating etc.) are visibly displayed in all facilities. Outer garments are regularly cleaned or changed to avoid cross-contamination. All workers wear outer garments (e.g. 4.B.3 smocks, aprons, sleeves, gloves) that are suitable for the operation. Smoking, eating, chewing and drinking are confined to 4.B.4 designated areas. Workers have access to clean toilets and hand washing facilities in the vicinity of their work. Toilets are in a good 4.B.5 state of hygiene and are not opening directly into the produce handling area, unless the door is self-closing. 4. Tea ourt (if applicable) arm vehicles and containers used for transport of harvested Rooibos are cleaned and maintained, and a cleaning schedule is in place to prevent contamination. Mold formation and over-fermentation during (intermediate) storage and transport are prevented. The certificate holder restricts the access of animals on and around the tea court. The certificate holder prevents contamination of Rooibos from workers walking on the tea court. arm vehicles and machines on and around the tea court are well maintained. Vehicles used on the court do not have oil leaks and have clean tires. Physical hazards in the harvested Rooibos (e.g. stones, metal/ plastic/glass pieces) are controlled. UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside Page 16 of 27

17 UTZ ERTIIED Good Inside ode of onduct for Rooibos Processing Version 1.0, ebruary 2011 Nº ONTROL POINT The certificate holder only uses clean water on the tea court 4..7 (e.g. for fermentation). 4.D Processing and storage areas 4.D.1 4.D.2 4.D.3 4.D.4 In the processing areas, the appropriate working and operating environment is maintained (e.g. sufficient fresh air, humidity control where necessary and well lit, etc.) Documented procedures are in place to avoid chances of physical hazards (e.g. plastic, metal and glass, wood pieces) in the processing areas. Workers can demonstrate knowledge of how to follow the procedure. The certificate holder keeps processing and storage facilities and equipment (i.e. packing lines and machinery, walls, floors, storage areas, pallets, plastic sheets etc.) clean, maintained and free of litter in order to prevent contamination. This includes all points where Rooibos is transferred. There are cleaning records, indicating name, facility, date, and location Machines used for processing are adequately cleaned. The workers involved in these cleaning operations are properly trained. Records are available for cleaning operations and for cleanliness s. 4.D.5 All equipment that comes into direct contact with Rooibos are regularly disinfected to avoid microbial contamination. 4.D.6 4.D.7 4.D.8 4.D.9 4.D.10 4.D.11 4.D.12 4.D.13 Storage areas for Rooibos are clearly identified and cleaned periodically. leaning schedules and records are available. Rooibos by-products and waste are stored in designated areas which are regularly cleaned leaning agents, lubricants and other substances that may come in contact with the Rooibos during processing are officially approved as food grade and used according to label instructions. Rooibos contamination by lubricants in the machinery is avoided. Disinfectants and cleaning agents are kept in a designated area, separate from where Rooibos is processed, to avoid contamination. Light bulbs and fixtures suspended above Rooibos or packing material are of a safety type or are protected/shielded so as to prevent contamination of product in case of breakage. Packing materials (incl re-useable crates) are stored in a clean and hygienic area to prevent product contamination until used. The certificate holder has put measures in place for all processing and storage areas to control pests and prevent contamination from animals (rodents, birds etc.).
