Your assigned lead auditor must finalize the audit report, gather all the evidence and submit the package to the GMS Intercert Services office. The Executive Certification Panel (ECP) reviews this information and the recommendation is then accepted or, rarely, rejected. If rejected, the auditor may require more information from you. After this process you will be informed by GMS Intercert Services of your certificate number. This process usually takes 5 working days after a recommendation is made.
