Who can be an Approved ZDHC InCheck Verifier
- 3rd Party Verifiers: For independent organizations who would like to provide ZDHC InCheck Verification to any members of the industry. The 3rd party verifier must not be associated directly to suppliers.
- 2nd Party Verifiers: For brands and retailers who would like to conduct ZDHC InCheck Verification to their supply chain. This is limited to ZDHC Contributor Brands and brands that are Friends of ZDHC.
- Vendors or sourcing agents of ZDHC contributor brands or brands who are Friends of ZDHC are not eligible to apply for the InCheck Verifiers at this stage.
- While ZDHC does not check whether the individual verifier meets the requirements at the application stage, we reserve the rights to conduct random checks on the verifier competency during the contracted period. Furthermore, we also reserve the right to conduct random checks on the quality of work performed by the individual verifiers.
Fee Structure and Application Procedure
In certain situations, ZDHC may request additional information and documentation or carry out specific evaluations, which may include derogations on certain requirements or acceptance of equivalent quality assurance criteria, to grant a fair, consistent, high-quality implementation of the Roadmap to Zero Programme on a global scale. If any extra fees are associated with this evaluation, the MRSL Certifier will receive advance notice.
