In late January, the European Union (EU) acknowledged that the U.S. Soy Sustainability Assurance Protocol (SSAP), meets the requirements under the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). Building on the widely accepted SSAP, the new program, called SSAP-RED, addresses the specific requirements of the RED regulations, including restrictions on land conversion with commitments on auditing, compliance, and reporting. The decision shall apply until June 30, 2021. NAEGA has worked to define and support the SSAP since its conception.
