Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme accredited participants are committed to a professional and environmentally responsible Australian tyre industry. Accreditation is an individually managed process based on initial submission of information and consultation process.
The Tyre Stewardship Australia Audit Handbook for Retailers provides accredited participants with a shared understanding of audit and compliance activities for Retailers. It sets out the processes used in TSA audits, assessment criteria for compliance and steps to resolve non-compliance.
It ensures transparency in relation to TSA audits and explains what Retailers are required to do before, during and after an audit.
The handbook should be read in conjunction with the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme Guidelines which sets out the requirements that apply to Participants, including Retailers.
