Frequently asked questions

Are there any fees for transferring certification to Southpac?

Southpac Certifications does not charge any fees to transfer your certification to us. However, we recommend you review your current provider’s terms and conditions as they may charge you cancellation fees if you cancel mid cycle, or if you do not give sufficient notice or have already booked your next audit. 

Importantly, if you transfer to us, we will pick up your certification cycle wherever it is at. You will not be required to restart the full audit cycle when you transfer.

Is payment required on transfer?

No, you only pay once you’ve completed the next audit in your cycle with our Southpac auditors.

Will I have my certificates re-issued by Southpac?

Yes, once we have completed your transfer to Southpac Certifications, including notifying and updating JASANZ, as well as your previous Certification Body, we will issue you with replacement certificates that will expire on the date of your current certification cycle. When your next re-certification audit is completed with us, you will be issued with new Southpac Certifications certificates, valid for 3 years.

Where are your auditors located?

Southpac Certifications has staff and contract auditors located right across Australia and New Zealand. Where available, we will always try to use an auditor located near to your closest capital city, which helps you save on any additional travel costs. However, if you request a specific auditor and they are required to travel to audit your business, additional travel costs will be incurred.

Will I have the same auditor each year?

We aim to provide you with the same auditor so there is continuity with your audits and within your business. You are always welcome to discuss your preferred auditor with our team.

You will be assigned a Certification Coordinator who will work with you to schedule your audits and help with any other questions that may arise at any time.
