FSA Verification Body (VB) Management

SAI Platform works with GLOBALG.A.P. to offer more services for FSA VBs.
One of the services we have developed is a streamlined VB approval process managed by GLOBALG.A.P. and approved by SAI Platform. The new process incorporates all changes introduced by SAI Platform in the latest “FSA Requirements for Verification Bodies and Auditors.” The evaluation is carried out by GLOBALG.A.P., and positive evaluation results are presented to SAI Platform for a final decision on whether to accept the VB in the FSA standard.

The application process for existing and new FSA VBs is active since 1 June 2019.

On 20. April 2021, SAI Platform has launched the new FSA version 3.0 that phase out v2.1 in the next 18 months. More information can be found on the  SAI Platform website.

A list of VBs approved by SAI Platform to operate the FSA standard can be found below.
