SIZA does not prescribe when sites must have their first audit after registration on the SIZA Platform. A site can remain a provisional member of SIZA on the system until it has a third party audit. After the audit the site becomes a full member as its SAQ information will have been verified in the audit process. The site then gets into the SIZA Audit Frequency cycle according to the SIZA-Audit-Frequency-Matrix-October-2018. There is no prejudice to growers in being a provisional member.
Once a site has done its first SIZA audit it gets into the SIZA Audit Frequency cycle which prescribes the frequency of audits according to the SIZA-Audit-Frequency-Matrix-October-2018
The next audit of these sites will be based on the SIZA-Audit-Frequency-Matrix-October-2018 and depends on the number of non-compliances which have not been completed and signed off as agreed to in the Corrective Action Plan Report. After the final date for completing non-compliances has passed, the site will be sent a letter indicating its risk rating and when their next audit will be due.
