All Verifiers must be associated to an approved Verifier Body (VB). Therefore, the first step to providing verification services is to complete a Verifier Body application. Once a VB is approved, the VB representative will be provided a link to the application for individual Verifiers. Click Here for a Flowchart of the Application Process

There are two levels of Verifier, a Generalist Verifier and a Chemical Specialist Verifier. Only a Chemical Specialist Verifier can verify Levels 2 & 3 of the Chemicals section.

SAC Members must pay an application fee but do not need to pay other fees to be a Verifier Body. Non-members must pay an application fee, as well as an annual fee (year one is discounted the cost of the application fee).
After you have been determined as eligible (meet the criteria), you will be invited to join the official Verifier training facilitated on the Sumerra Training and Education Platform (STEP).
