If, during the NIBL FQAS inspection, non-conformances with any of the codes are found, then producers are normally allowed one month in which to take remedial action to rectify the non-conformance. Failure to take remedial action and provide evidence of such (either documentary evidence or by re-inspection) will lead to suspension from the scheme until the remedial action is completed. If this is not done the producers registration in the scheme will be revoked.
The document below provides further information on the numbers of producers participating in NIBL FQAS, the number of applications, inspections and certifications on a rolling 12 month basis.
