Based on the client’s application, the inspection body will prepare a quotation for the audit service. The quotation is based upon the level of effort required to carry out the audit – e.g. farm or group size, type of crop(s), geographic setting and distribution of farms – and the costs associated with the service – e.g. auditor daily rates, travel costs and administrative support. To reduce administrative costs, the client may directly provide lodging, transport and meals for the auditors (as indicated on the application).
For the certification administrative fees, Sustainable Farm Certification International, Ltda. defines its certification service fees to subcontracted Inspection Bodies in its Fee Policy.
The Fee Policy describes the fees for different types of operations that the Inspection Body may inspect. This information is publicly available; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding certification service fees.
