  • 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
