The new KH-CoC Protocol offers the alternative of group certification. Group certification is a favourable option for small companies (up to a maximum of 15 fte). A group consists of a group manager and group members. The costs for certification are limited, as during the annual audit - comparable to a Multi-site - only the group manager and a sample of group members are assessed..
Soon after the new KH-CoC Protocol became operative per January 1st 2011, group manager Symaco from Lisse started to form a first group.
