New Scheme Applications

A scheme shall be considered to be a 'new scheme application' if the scheme has:

  • not previously undergone benchmarking by the GFSI,
  • been previously recognised by the GFSI, but has had its recognition withdrawn.

Application for Re-Benchmarking or Extension to a Scope of Recognition

Re-Benchmarking

A scheme shall be considered to be a 'Re-Benchmarking' application if the scheme is:

  • applying for a new scope of recognition,
  • seeking a change in extension within an existing recognised scope, which does not represent a significant change to the scheme governance or ownership, the management system or key elements.

Extension of Scope

A scheme shall be considered to be an 'Extension to a Scope of Recognition ' application if the scheme:

  • has had significant change to the scheme governance or ownership, the management system or key elements, or
  • a scheme will anyway be benchmarked on the 4 year anniversary of its original recognition or
  • there has been a change in the Guidance Document within the four year revision cycle, or
  • there has been a suspension of recognition by GFSI

Benchmarking Process

All details can be found in the GFSI Guidance Document.
