Assurance Program Fees

Application Fees – 3-year Program Cycle

Invoices will be sent after the ARB accepts the initial application. Any questions or concerns should be sent to secretariat@kantarainitiative.org.

Application fees for the second and third years of the program cycle are less than year 1 due to the smaller scope of Annual Conformity Reviews.
