How we will continue to be of service

FoodChain ID is working with standard owners and customers to ensure validity of certificates continues. We are also committed to being as flexible as possible as it relates to your needs including:

  • Conducting of audits – where possible and allowable, we are still conducting on-site audits, where there is no risk to team member or customer.
  • Remote auditing – where possible and allowable, we are conducting remote audits, with on-site inspection to occur at a later date.
  • Certificate extensions – when possible and allowable, we are extending certificates 3-4 months, depending on standard owner requirements.
  • Fees – cancellation fees for modification of audit schedule are waived until further notice. So will management fees for the extension of any audit certificate.
  • Scheduling – If you need to re-schedule an audit we will be as flexible as possible to conduct your audit as it is safely possible to do so.
