External audits, suspended early in 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, have resumed in 2022. The requirement to perform one external audit every three years to maintain Clean Plants certification is therefore reinstated.

Remote external audits are now offered by the Clean Plants program. Members may choose between remote, in-person or a hybrid of both formats depending on what best suits their operations.

The button (below) opens to the list of members due to perform an external audit this year. To schedule your external audit, contact a CNCI-accredited auditor

Members not scheduled for an external audit are required to submit two internal audit reports, as usual, to maintain their status.
