Scope Certificate (SC)

A Scope Certificate (SC) verifies that a company is qualified to produce goods to a given standard. To qualify the company must be inspected by the certification body to the requirements of the standard.

Processors, manufacturers, traders and retailers that have demonstrated their ability to comply with the relevant criteria in the corresponding certification procedure to an Approved Certifier receive a Scope Certificate (certificate of compliance), which lists the products/ product categories that can be offered certified (and labeled) to the product and the corresponding production stages.
