Have you seen our HARPS Fact Sheet?
This Fact Sheet has been developed to provide an update and answer frequently asked questions from the recent HARPS awareness sessions.
A decision graphic has been developed to assist suppliers in determining whether their business requires HARPS. The terminology in this graphic replaces the previous references to Direct and Indirect suppliers, and uses a tiering system to define supply chain responsibilities and actions required by suppliers.
Additional Support: HARPS awareness sessions have recently been completed around the country covering several major growing areas along with the major central markets. Additional webinars will be made available for those unable to attend the sessions.
Additional Time: Tier 2 suppliers that may require HARPS approval will have until 1st January 2019. These businesses should register their interest in achieving HARPS approval here by 30th June 2018.
In addition, low volume producers supplying less than 10 pallets per year will not require HARPS approval. These suppliers will fall under Tier 3 and will be required to be certified to an approved base scheme (see Decision graphic for details).
