|A multi-site is where a head office of a company manages a number of production sites through a central management system, taking responsibility for company policies and procedures (for example, human resource functions). The head office in this case can register as a Level 3b member which will be at a per site fee of R960 excl VAT per site for the first 6. In case a business have more than 6 sites, there is a base fare of R6500 excl VAT for up to 10 sites and there after a R960 excl VAT per site fare applies.|

A company which owns 6 sites and manages these through a centralized system can rather register each site as a level 1 member as this is a cheaper option.

A production site is an agricultural production and/or processing facility that:
(1) An export agent owns a packhouse and a number of sites but they are each run as independent units with their own management systems. How must they register? If the export agent needs to be linked and have visibility of their suppliers on the data system, then the exporter must register as a Level 3 member; each site must register as a Level 1 member; if the packhouse is a producer / packhouse it registers as a Level 1 member.
(2) A pack house owns and packs for three farms. They all fall under one company. How must they register? The pack house/ producer should register as Level 1; and the other two sites as a Producer Level 1.
(3) A company owns and centrally manages 5 production sites. How must they register? Even though the sites are centrally managed, it is cheaper for the company to register each site as a Level 1 member rather than a Multi-site.
