What is the cost of GRS or RCS certification?

We typically estimate that the time from application to certification is 6-8 weeks for either standard (RCS or GRS). RCS costs are estimated to be around $3000-$5,000. Because the GRS includes additional audits for social, chemical, and environmental requirements, the price of certification is usually estimated to be around $7000-$9,000 USD. In addition to many different factors that affect the cost, the amount is ultimately determined by the Certification Body who audits against the standards, so you should reach out to a few different certification bodies for quotes.
