VALIDITY OF CERTIFICATION
Eurofins | Chem-MAP ZDHC certification is valid for two years from the date of issue, allowing certification expenditures to be spread out over a longer period.
NO REQUIREMENT FOR FULL DISCLOSURE
Certification with Eurofins | Chem-MAP does not require full formation disclosure. Based on how the formulation is used, samples are chosen for analysis that represent the complete product portfolio.
Where audits are required for ZDHC conformance Levels 2 and 3, Eurofins | Chem-MAP have a large team of auditors located across the world. This means that Chem-MAP have a wide breadth of local knowledge within the chemical industry and language barriers are limited.
EXTENSION TO SCOPE & DUE DILIGENCE
It is likely that many chemical manufacturers would be looking to increase their scope of products listed on the ZDHC gateway or incorporate risk-based due diligence testing. This is possible through a percentage of additional MRSL testing at any point within the existing certification. Any extension to scope will have a two-year validity period from the issuing date.
MARKETING SUPPORT & BRAND LOGO
Upon completion of ZDHC certification, Chem-MAP approved partners will have access to marketing support to communicate their conformance. This includes press releases, articles, advertisement of logo on the Chem-MAP website as well as access to the use of a bespoke Chem-MAP approved partner logo.
DISCOUNT STRUCTURES & CONTINUED SUPPORT
Chem-MAP approved partners will have access to continued support surrounding their ZDHC certification. In addition, they will also be entitled to exclusive discount structures for additional due diligence testing, extension to scopes and recertification. Discount structures are also applicable on an introductory basis when certifying in larger quantities, which is thereby more cost effective.
