Step 4 – Certification Decision

Once you have reviewed your report, your auditor will send a summary audit report to the RJC. This includes the audit findings and the auditor's recommendation for issuing an RJC certificate.

  • The RJC reviews the report for completeness and clarity, directing any questions to the auditor.
  • Depending on the auditor's recommendation, the RJC will then issue you a certificate, which will be for one or three years.
  • Your certificate will be issued with a unique certification number as well as RJC logos, for you to promote your certified status. RJC can also help you publish a press release.
  • RJC updates its website list of certified members with your details.
