As of 2018, FairTSA will make attendance of our online trainings a requirement for all FT
certified producers. Your certifier will not issue a certificate until three things have been
submitted to FairTSA:
1 - The FairTSA Application on file
2 - Proof of webinar attendance
3 - P
roof of payment of the FairTSA annual fee
If any one of these things are missing, this is
grounds for suspension of your certification.
Additionally, certified producers who have already attended are encouraged to attend again.
We welcome participation! These webinars are the most comprehensive place to learn and
ask questions about the Fair Trade inspection and certification process, and we routinely
update our presentation. Feel free to join!
Annual Payments Due
This is a reminder that the FairTSA annual fee is a requirement to keep your certification.
We require this is paid annually by February 15th for certified parties. If you are a newly
certified entity, payment is required before we can issue your certificate. Any
noncompliance of these deadlines is grounds for suspension of your certification.
