Tariffs for the GSPP Foundation and the Audit Organizations

Tariffs will be charged for the audits and travelling costs (by the Auditing Organizations), the annual fee for the system (by GSPP Foundation) and the TIP fund contribution (by GSPP Foundation).

Annual fee and TIP fund contribution for 2017

The basis for the annual fee is the classification of the type of business activities the company undertakes, according to the definitions of GSPP. The GSPP board decides on the classification. Per extra site or hectare an extra fee is charged.

Next to this the GSPP Board decided about the creation of a TIP fund. This fund is aimed at executing a Technical Investigation Procedure in the chain of the tomato production in case of a Cmm confirmed infection. A TIP fund contribution will be collected. Each year the GSPP secretariat will give an update and report on the status of the TIP fund.

Both the annual fee for 2017 and the TIP fund contribution are explained in the scheme below.
