That's how I read it, if you want a subsidy/elms then you will have to be assured, eventually leading to needing formal agriculture qualifications and a licence to farm.Didn't understand that. Does it mean RT will be no longer be voluntary ?
A true level playing field would mean scrapping RT altogether me thinks.
And as I've said before this made up b0l1ocks to try and justify red tractor in some small way. Assured here and have had 3 full inspections one ear tags only and one trading standards in about ten years. So about one inspection ever 2 years.I was reading it that if you’re assured then you are less likely to get a cross compliance or other SFP inspection as DEFRA can see what standards you are already being assessed for?
