Other than possibly a price break using only one certifying body, is there any value in going with two certifying bodies?  We have 29 facilities that need re-certification or certification. Thanks in advance - David

Are the 2 certifying bodies required by different customers ? (or the same customer ?)


Kind Regards,

No customer requirement for certifying body selection.  We've been working with two vendors.  One for training and currently using as our current certifying body.  The other vendor has been used for training but they also are a certifying body.

Apologies I misinterpreted yr OP as meaning 2 different Standards, eg BRC/SQF.

 

Assuming the 2 certifying bodies you mention are of "equivalent" efficiency and equally accessible I can see no reason unless cost is a factor.

 

Why are you using 2 vendors ?.


Kind Regards,
