Today we are announcing that the BCI Council have approved the launch of a formal review of the BCI Standard. This revision process will take place throughout 2015 and provides an exciting opportunity for us to incorporate improvements into the Standard. These improvements will take us closer to reaching our ultimate mission; transforming cotton production worldwide by developing Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity. Importantly, the review of the Standard will strengthen the credibility of the overall Better Cotton Standard System.
We are committed to reviewing the Standard at least once every five years, and as part of this process, will integrate feedback from our various stakeholders. As an ISEAL Associate Member the review process will be undertaken in line with ISEAL’s recommendations for good practice.
This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the review of the BCI Standard. To read about the process that will be followed in the review and how you can get involved, click here.
