In essence, the relevance and importance of the ISEAL code is to bring a high degree of credibility to standard setting of private organizations such as FLO. The areas and levels of responsibility are further explained on the ISEAL website and in the following explanatory note. In this note it is also explained which specific efforts were undertaken by FLO to come into compliance with the ISEAL code.
The Standards Committee ensures that decisions taken on standards take into account the views of all the relevant stakeholders and are in line with FLO's mission and policy statements.
