UEBT's standard builds on the BioTrade Principles and Criteria as developed by the UNCTAD BioTrade Initiative. It was last revised after consultation with a wide range of stakeholders – companies, communities, civil society in  2012.

UEBT is a member of ISEAL, the global association for credible sustainability standards.  We implement the ISEAL codes of good practice on standard setting, assurance and impact monitoring.
