A CB can have one of three statuses:
Provisionally approved: The CB has successfully passed the first steps of the GLOBAL S.L.P. approval process in accordance with the general regulations and is allowed to issue non-accredited certificates to a limited number of producers for a respective scope and sub-scope(s).
Approved: The CB has completed all the steps of the GLOBAL S.L.P. approval process (including accreditation) and can issue an unlimited number of accredited certificates for a respective scope and sub-scope(s).
Suspended: The CB has been given a red card and is suspended in accordance with the general regulations.
Performance ratings were established to promote continuous improvement of the CB. Regardless of their rating, all CBs listed may be chosen for certification.
Temporary suspension (red card) and cancelations of a CB are explicitly indicated next to the CB name. These CBs cannot be chosen for certification while the sanction is in effect.
Ratings range from 1 to 5 stars:
1 Unacceptable, low performance
2 Major improvement necessary
3 Some improvement necessary
4 Good performance
5 Excellent performance
Hover your mouse over the stars in the performance rating column to see the key performance indicators (KPIs) used for the rating.
Rating pending: There is not yet enough evidence collected within the evaluation criteria to establish an overall KPI rating. This does not mean bad performance.
