          Details of monitoring: Using internal monitoring and verification systems
          "Instead, the sustainability team has put more effort into third party supplier monitoring. Whilst this is already common practice among trader-refiners, Bumitama’s efforts are to be appreciated because very few – if any – other pure growers have commenced supplier monitoring in line with their NDPE policy. NGOs will appreciate that even though most of Bumitama’s third-party suppliers are independent smallholders, persistent non-compliance will trigger supply chain exclusion. The baseline approach, however, is to identify non-compliance risk and to assist suppliers to comply."
