As Certified Program Owners of the 455 Audit Scheme, the GRMA takes pride in its comprehensive audit integrity program (AIP). While the NSF/ANSI 455-Standards are the best in the industry, the many components of the AIP ensure that consumers can have a high level of confidence on the products they buy. The ability of the GRMA to collect meta-data from multiple supplier audits by multiple CB’s brings a new era in transparency, quality, and safety. This information will be used to ensure all members of the GRMA can benefit – a rising tide floats all boats!
