Approved Certification Bodies for the UTZ program
Explanation of sanctions
Yellow card: is a second level of sanction, obtained from either ; further misconduct after several warnings received within a given period, when the CB disrespects a decision taken by UTZ or when credibility risks arising to the UTZ program due to CB performance. Please note, when a CB has a yellow card, the CB can continue conducting audits.
Red card: is a proven misconduct of a CB while holding a yellow card status, a negative outcome of the monitoring audit performed to lift the yellow card status, conditions for the approval are not fully met. Please note, when a CB has a red card, the CB is not allowed to conduct any audits for the scope for which it has been sanctioned (e.g. Geographical, Standard).
Please note that a sanction is given depending on the severity of the misconduct and on previous sanctions given to the CB, as explained below. The Rainforest Alliance may decide on any level of sanction at any moment; this means that there is no need to follow a linear sequence of sanctions (i.e a red card may be directly issued without any previous warning or yellow card) nor to wait until the end of the monitoring period.
