Certification Process

Once you have all the proper documents for certification, compare offers from the certification bodies in your country and register with the one you choose. Carry out a self-assessment using certification checklist and correct all points that you don’t comply with. Arrange an appointment with your approved certification body. An inspector/auditor will then conduct an on-site inspection. Once you have complied with standard’s requirements, you’ll receive your certification.

How Guardian Harvest Can Help

Guardian Harvest makes sure everything is order for your certification and audit. We gather reports from growers and their suppliers in order to fulfill the requirements of the certification standard. Our job is to make it as painless of a process as possible for you, the grower. We will do what we’re best at and partner with you so ou can do what you’re best at. We don’t see our growers just as clients, but as partners. We’ll schedule an auditor to come during harvest, go through all the paperwork on your behalf, and visit the ranch with the auditor.
