Auditor Performance Survey

Auditor Performance Survey

PrimusGFS Certification Bodies

Details for certification bodies (CBs) approved for performing PrimusGFS audits are noted below.

Key Points

CBs are approved by the PrimusGFS Certification Program to perform certificated PrimusGFS audits.

CBs have already been accredited against ISO/IEC 17065 or ISO/IEC 17021 (or equivalent) or are working towards this accreditation (“provisionally” approved by the Certification Program ).

CBs have auditors that are approved to perform GAP and/or GMP operation type audits.

CBs are not geographically restricted by the PrimusGFS Certification Program. CBs can operate in any country they wish though auditees should work with their CB to consider the potential need of a translator. Auditees should also work with their CB to establish the travel expenses that may be incurred.

CBs fees are negotiated between the CB and the auditee; this includes audit fees and travel expenses. PrimusGFS bills the CB’s for application and certification(s). Per audit, PrimusGFS bills the CB the following amounts:

  • $50 per organization application
  • $40 per operation audit entry fee
  • $27 per operation certification (posting fee on the PrimusGFS register site  and certificate issue)

Approved Certification Bodies

Currently the following Certification Bodies are licensed to provide audit and certification services for all scopes of PrimusGFS certification. Each CB endures rigorous training and is monitored by the PrimusGFS team consistently to ensure quality. Quality is measured using the PrimusGFS Auditor Integrity program which CBs may use, as well as the PrimusGFS team to calculate performance based on unique metrics.
