Each producer that wants to participate in the organic PGS must sign an organic producer promise to confirm their commitment to these standards. For independent producers, the promise must be signed by whoever is responsible for onsite practices (e.g. the owner or the farm manager). For producer groups, each individual member must review and sign a promise.
The producer promise should be kept onsite as a reminder of the standards and the promise. A photo or scanned image should be sent to the PGS Coordinator.
The promise is available in Sinhala, Tamil, and English and should be signed in the producer’s primary language. Literacy rates are very high in Sri Lanka, but if there is a case that a producer is unable to read the promise, a producer group member or the PGS Coordinator can read it to them and get their mark to verify that they understood all points.
