Public Consultation Closed: 4C Code of Conduct

Public consultation

4C is continuously working to improve the 4C certification system. Feedback from 4C System users and other interested third parties is an important source for the ongoing development and therefore highly welcome. To gather feedback, 4C Services publishes relevant documents for public consultation. 4C Services will analyse and consider the feedback received before publishing the final version of the document including the date on which it becomes valid.

4C Code of Conduct Revision Process

Within the previous months, we have extensively worked on compiling all our experiences made within the last years, and the feedback received from our stakeholders to revise the 4C Code of Conduct.

This step aims at making the system more robust and fostering a continuous improvement process on the farm level. The revision is primarily based on the stakeholder feedback, received during previous stakeholder meetings, calls, and via business correspondence.

4C Services invited all interested parties to send any comments and feedback with regard to the new version of the 4C Code of Conduct. Public consultation is now closed.

Important note: 4C continuously collects feedback to improve the 4C Code of Conduct, which is revised every 5 years. The next 4C Code of Conduct revision will take place in 2025, after which it will be made available to all stakeholders for public consultation.
