BCS Scheme Rules

BCS Scheme Rules version 6


The Scheme Rules contain the operating procedures of the BCS for the licensing and use of digested products.

REAL has sought to provide a suitable and robust scheme framework given the continued diversification of the AD/biogas industry and increased participation in this scheme. The rules have been reviewed and endorsed by REAL's Biofertiliser Certification Technical Advisory Committee.
