Certification is achieved through audit by an independent third party company appointed by JAAF, SGS Lanka. To achieve compliance companies need to implement systems to manage the key requirements of the Charter and ensure accurate records are maintained.

On completion we supply your audit to JAAF for their evaluation. Once reviewed your JAAF certificate will be issued, or a notification of corrective actions will be made. Successful completion of corrective actions will enable a re-audit and certification to be issued.
