Audit certificate

One component of the SNF standard is that an undertaking that houses its own employees must demonstrate that it is a ‘good employer’. Temporary work agencies and payroll companies do so through SNA registration. Agricultural businesses in both open-field and greenhouse cultivation do so by completing and signing the ‘good employer’ form from the relevant collective labour agreement. Mushroom companies which hold a Fair Produce certificate do so by means of the Fair Produce quality mark. All other businesses demonstrate their good employment practices by means of an audit certificate.

The audit protocol explains how the audit must be carried out. Appendix 1 of the protocol sets out the format for the certificate. The undertaking must send the certificate to the SNF’s administrative office. It does not need to be sent to the inspection body.
