From 1 October 2016, it becomes mandatory for all Certificate Holders to use the DTS to record details of SBP Transaction Claims being passed to customers. Importantly, from this date the DTS is the only valid mechanism for customers to receive SBP Transaction Claims from their suppliers, and a review of Transaction Claims in the DTS for each Certificate Holder will become part of the Certification Body’s audit process.
For some Certificate Holders it may be convenient to provide/receive confirmation of the SBP Transaction Claim by including details on the invoice or other document. In which case, the following wording should be included in the invoice/document:
“The SBP Transaction Claim referenced here has been recorded in the SBP DTS”
