Find an Auditor

Independent audits build trust and confidence in your certification

RJC certification programmes are independently verified to maintain their credibility. Impartial and consistent auditing reassures RJC members that their responsible business practices are rigorous and lead to positive change. Given the critical nature of third-party conformity assessment bodies (CABs) and auditors to our standards, RJC auditor accreditation criteria are high.

RJC certification requires independent verification by an RJC third-party accredited auditor. All accredited auditors have passed a thorough application process and receive ongoing training. This ensures that all RJC members receive a third-party audit that is impartial, consistent and trustworthy. Our procedure for accrediting third-party Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) and auditors is aligned with ISO 7011 and ISEAL Assurance Code.

Impartial and consistent auditing provides RJC members confidence and reassurance that their responsible business practices are rigorous and lead to positive change.

Independent Audit Fees

Audit fees range from £500 to over £1,000 depending on the complexity and conditions of the audit. The nature of RJC certification programs is to provide a robust framework that can be applied to each unique business – wherever you are in the supply chain, and wherever you are on your sustainability journey. As such, it is not possible to create a standard audit fee and we rely on the insight and expertise of our independent auditors to provide fair fee structures. If you have any concerns, please get in touch with our Membership Team.
