One Health Certified™ guidelines are verified via the USDA Process Verified Program (PVP) procedures and offers applicants a unique way to market their products using clearly defined, implemented, and transparent process points. A detailed Quality Manual shows how a company meets One Health Certified™ requirements. Companies that align their procedures to meet the program standards and achieve certification can label their retail and wholesale products with a simple logo that conveys that responsible animal care practices have been followed and verified to achieve optimal health outcomes for animals, consumers, and the planet.
Desk Audit: Once all required documentation is submitted, AMS auditors conduct a desk audit to ensure that all program requirements are accounted for in the Quality Manual. The complete application is submitted to a Program Review Committee, which reviews all process points and approves the application. After the desk audit is successfully completed, AMS will then schedule on-site audits to verify program compliance.
On-Site Visit: This process can last anywhere from a day to a week depending on the number and scope of process point and the size and complexity of the operation. AMS auditors conduct an on-site audit of all phases of the operation that impact process verified points.
Complete Process to Use Branded Logos
After successfully completing and passing audits, check your email inbox for a message from our administration (email@example.com). This message will request information needed to generate an invoice for permission to use One Health Certified™ branded logos on products. Once the invoice is paid, you may use branded program logos for one year.
