Do we have to be an RJC Member in order to be certified to the RJC standard?
In order to be certified to the RJC standard(s) a company must first apply for membership with the RJC.
How long does the audit take to complete?
Audit length depends on the size and complexity of the Member’s operations. This is defined in the Member’s self-assessment that is requested by SCS during the initial scoping process.
How long does it take to become RJC certified?
This depends on initial audit results; typically the audit, report writing, and report review process takes about 1 month from the opening meeting, before it is delivered to the RJC for final approval.
What happens when your auditors find non-compliance issues during an RJC audit?
Auditors will define a non-conformance as either minor or major, depending on the severity of the non-conformance. If a critical breach is identified, the Member must address the non-conformance within 4 weeks of the audit.
What do I need to complete during the audit scoping phase?
Prior to contacting SCS, it is recommended that members complete the RJC self-assessment workbook. SCS will primarily request a completed scoping tab in order to provide a quote estimate for audit services.
