Status of DTAS Members' Depots

Green indicates that it is more than six weeks until the current certificate expires.
Amber indicates that it is less than six weeks until the current certificate expires.
Red indicates that the current certificate has expired.
Note: As from 1st May 2023, the DTAS Standards are now based on a modular format, whereby members are certified for those aspects of the scheme that they undertake and the annual audits are conducted on this basis. Modules A-F were introduced on 1 May 2023 and Module G: Traction-only was added on 1 May 2024.
All members have to comply with Module A: General Management and members indicate which of the following additional modules will also be included in their audits, according to the scope of their operations:
  Module B: Sub-depots, Outbased Reloads (OBR) and Use of Lay-bys
  Module C: Farm Collection and Roadside Collection
  Module D: Reload
  Module E: Milk Fractions
  Module F: Depot On-site CIP
  Module G: Traction-only
The table below shows which of the modules have been included in the audit for an individual site and, therefore, which aspects of the DTAS Scheme it is certified for.
