There are two different RSB fees that you should consider: the application fee and the RSB licencing fee.

  1. The application fee is a once-off $500 USD fee payable upon application to become an RSB Participating Operator. It is applicable to every individual application.
  2. The licencing fees for RSB certification are determined by a number of factors – such as the type and size of your operation (e.g. hectares, volume of production, number of offices). It is important to note that for volume-based operations licencing fees are calculated based on only the RSB certified product that you actually sell.

In addition, audit costs are external and will be determined by your Certification Body based upon the specific requirements of your operation.
