I just completed a surveillance audit with Merieux NutriSciences and am now shopping around as well.  I had an unannounced annual certification audit last year.  Our 2016 score was a 97, our 2017 score was a 73.  It was a huge, unexpected blow.

 

After this surveillance audit, I really want to find a new certifying body.  We manufacture colorants and I've never experienced an audit as unreasonable as these last two audits have been.

So it looks like we are going with Dicentra..........the references I have spoken with have been glowing...they do have offices in the USA as well.

 

It's funny to me that I can find a review for my doctor........but when searching for a CB,zippo

 

I had another flat out refuse to forward me contact info to clients by way of reference........what are you hiding then? Claimed is was a breech of confidentiality

 

NSF knows that they are priced high, but were shocked when I told them 20% higher than the industry standard.

 

Gross, the whole thing is making me ill...................we are all getting robbed and do not have any recourse
