EBIC Code of Conduct Implementation

In this section, you’ll find basic information about the implementation of EBIC’s Code of Conduct for Placing Plant Biostimulants on the Market.


Company implementation of  the Code of Conduct

Membership in EBIC is contingent on a company committing to uphold the Code of Conduct. Since implementation is an ongoing process, each company must develop its own personalized compliance plan about how it will respect the Code today and over time.  Each company is responsible for meeting the targets and deadlines it sets for itself. The Secretariat maintains a repository of the compliance plans as they are completed/updated by members. The table below indicates when EBIC members have submitted each of these documents or updates.
