Reduced Pricing results from FTT Strategy Review

  • June 09, 2015 Reduced Pricing results from FTT Strategy Review

Over the past few months, FTT has undertaken a thorough strategic review. As a result, the following measures are being put in place to simplify the audit process and add value to our clients:

•FTT certification will now be valid for three years, with only one audit fee payable every three years for an onsite Flo-Cert audit. The annual online audit will no longer be mandatory and the annual audit fee will therefore disappear. This means certification fees will reduce by about 60% over 3 years.
•  Audit fees will be invoiced in future by FTT in Rands, replacing the current system of invoicing by Flo-Cert in Euros.
• The auditor guidelines for Small Medium Enterprises will be simplified.
• The criteria for tour operator approval will also be simplified, enabling tour operators to become more easily approved to sell Fair Trade Holidays.
