MPOCC has never endorsed other parties to provide consultation services for palm oil dealers - MPIC

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council (MPOCC) has never endorsed any consultants, companies and representatives to provide consultation services for palm oil dealers, said the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities (MPIC).

In a statement, MPIC said all Accredited Certification Bodies (ACB) are going through the accreditation process with the Department of Standards Malaysia.

It noted that the list of ACB for MSPOMS2530:2022 could be found on MPOCC’s website.

"This is necessary to ensure that certification bodies that conduct audits under the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification scheme are competent to carry out credible and consistent audits,” it said an a statement.

MPOCC reiterated that palm oil processing facilities and dealers could voluntarily apply for MSPO certification under the MS2530:2022 Part 4.2 and 4.3 until the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) announces the mandatory implementation.

However, the MSPO certification has not been made mandatory for palm oil processing facilities and dealers.

The MSPO standard MS2530:2022 is the new version launched on March 22, 2022, with the new parts of MSPO standard which are Part 4.2 for palm oil processing facilities and Part 4.3 for dealers.

Previously, the standard’s version was known as MS2530:2013. - Bernama
