DENIS LAVRISHCHEV, director of «Martlet, LLC»:

Every company has the right to decide whether or not to pass the audit. There are any indispensable condition or restrictions. The standard is voluntary and you can adhere to the standard even without passing an Audit.

However, in conditions of growing competition, the buyer will always use the product with the highest value with guaranteed quality. Here   a standardization system and certification system comes to the rescue, which has a high level of trust and is transparent in its requirements.

The GAFTA Fumigation standard is formed in the same way. An enterprise can provide a service according to its technical regulations, getting the final result using “non-transparent” methods or undergo an Audit and perform services according to the international standard. We decided to pass the Audit, to secure our position as a reliable and customer-oriented partner
