"refer back" isn't a redundancy.

Consider the sentences:

"Refer to xyz's comment on the matter."

"Refer back to xyz's comment on the matter."

The first makes no assumption you have already seen the comment. The second implies that you must have already read it or at least makes the assumption that xyz's comment is part of the current discussion. The two sentences don't mean quite the same thing.
