Audit Reports

NSF Canada Ag will send you your final audit report directly, not through your auditor. Turnaround of the audit report takes three weeks to one month. You should not expect your report and final score sooner than that. If it takes longer than one month to receive your audit report, please contact NSF Canada Ag directly (see “Contact NSF Canada Ag”).

Audit Certificates

Please contact NSF Canada Ag if you receive an incorrect certificate, have not yet received your certificate, need a hard copy, etc.
