GETTING CERTIFIED

The actual certification process is relatively straight-forward and is summed up in the diagram below:

Stage 1 -
Fill out Pre-Inspection Form

This involves completing the Pre-Inspection form. In this form we will request contact information and product information. It is at this stage that we will decide whether there is a high probability that the product can be certified. We do not want to waste our clients time and expenses organising an audit for an un-certifiable product. Any information received regarding ingredients, formulations and production processes will be bound by The IKO Confidentiality Policy


Stage 2 - Co-ordinate & Carry out INITIAL INSPECTION
Assuming that the product is indeed certifiable we will arrange an initial audit. At the initial audit, the inspector will check the whole production process and explain to the company what steps need to be taken in order to ensure that the product is able to be certified as kosher.


Stage 3 -
SIGNING OF IKO CONTRACT

Assuming that the initial inspection is passed a company specific contract will be sent to the company. This contract will specify what ingredients, formulations and production processes may be used in order to maintain the kosher status.


Stage 4 - Receive Certificate, logo and begin marketing/ selling your kosher product.
CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE CERTIFIED!
