If an agricultural chemical applicator does not meet the CanadaGAP requirement, how is this scored in the Audit Checklist (Section E – Question #9)?
This question is scored on an all or nothing basis. Either the applicator is in compliance with the standard or they are not. There is no “INCOMPLETE” option available for this question. If the applicator is in compliance and has proof of this, they receive full marks; otherwise the score is ‘0’. If there are multiple applicators, ALL applicators are expected to be in compliance. Scoring is based on the worst case scenario (e.g., if 4 out of 5 applicators are in compliance the score is still 0).
