CertifieR Information

& Application

FairTSA is designed to work mainly with organic certifiers. The collaboration is based on a clear separation of functions and tasks as required by ISO principles. It enables any participating certifier to provide an additional service to existing clients and attract new ones without the otherwise necessary private Fair Trade standard development. The advantages of FairTSA for organic certifiers:

  • Enhanced service for, and protection of their existing customers

  • Attraction of new customers

  • Separation of standard holder and certification agency

  • Necessary forms, processes and systems provided by FairTSA

  • Simple accreditation procedure and inexpensive accreditation fees

  • Concise and affordable Training for inspectors and certifiers

  • “Modular Standard” that accepts all prevalent organic standards as fulfilling most environmental criteria and Parts of Good Agricultural Practices standards as parts of fulfilling the requirements for conventional operations

  • No own Fair Trade Standard development and marketing

The application process is easy and straightforward: download the application below, return it and attach the certificate of incorporation and your current accreditation certificate. We will send you an invoice for the initial accreditation fee. Once we have received that fee we will initiate our due diligence process and within four weeks you will get a response. If the response is positive we will issue the accreditation certificate. If there are public records that document serious accreditation violations within the last three years, accreditation will be denied and we will reimburse any amounts above $500 that you paid as initial accreditation fee.
