Production site registration
The first step in the seed and planting material control and certification process is for an operator to be authorized to produce under SOC official supervision.
Registration will only be granted once the company undergoes an evaluation during which it must demonstrate that it can implement the certification system(s) required for the species or groups of species it wishes to produce.
Authorization is granted by the Head of SOC. The operator will then be subject to regular monitoring, and the approval will be revoked if an operator does not respect the regulations governing seed/planting material production.
