Total Fee Relief for Bushfire Affected Certified Organic / Biodynamic Operators
Southern Cross Certified (SXC) is waiving up to 100% of the certification and audit fees for any currently certified organic or biodynamic
operator that has been affected by the devastating bushfires that have ravaged many parts of Australia since October 2019.
SXC will waive organic / BD audit and certification fees for operators who can demonstrate a direct loss of at least 30% of their ability to generate
revenue. The waiver will also be applied in the event of a loss of a major part of the production unit, or an indirect impact, such as the loss of supply chains.
Annual renewal and audit fees for currently certified SXC operators who can demonstrate loss, will also be waived for a period of 12 months.
This offer is open to all certified organic / BD operations in Australia, regardless of which certification body they are currently certified with.
This will, in most cases, involve a transfer of certification and the certification period will be for 12 months. There is no obligation on the
certified party to remain with SXC following the 12 month period. If the certified party desires to retain organic certification with SXC, then
normal certification and annual renewal fees will apply. If there is no desire to retain certification, then SXC will assist the client in
withdrawing their certification.
There are no Application Fees and SXC does not charge Marketing or Development Levies.
