Outsourced Activities

You must be able to demonstrate that there is a valid orchard services agreement between your business and the grower.

This includes demonstrating you have provided a valid CAV to the grower of all orchards you work on.

If you use subcontractors, you must ask for a copy of their CAV and cross check this against the Approved Contractor List.  

A copy of your subcontractors CAV must also be provided to the grower.


For more details, including all principles and criteria, please refer to the “Am I Ready?” checklist.
