On completion of step two, depending on the level and number of non-conformities raised, certification will be granted by Exova BM TRADA for either 6 months (grade C achieved) or 12 months (grade A or B achieved). You will be issued with a certificate and certification marks to demonstrate and promote your certification.
A full announced re-audit will be required after 6/12 months depending on the certification grade achieved. An unannounced audit can be conducted for a site that has achieved a grade A or B. Sites granted certification under the unannounced programme will be graded either A+ or B+ and will have their re-audit after 12 months.
