  • a simple but documented management system showing how the outcomes will be met.

  • will abide by the Spreadmark Codes of Conduct;
  • will abide by such Rules, Protocols and Policies as are made by the Fertiliser Quality Council;
  • will pay the annual Spreadmark promotion and administration levy;
  • allow reasonable access to the appointed Spreadmark Auditor; and
  • pay the auditor such audit fees as are due.
  • will advise the Fertiliser Quality Council if there are any changes to our company name, postal address or contact person.

We agree that if Spreadmark accreditation is withdrawn or lapses all mention of Spreadmark made in the companies publications or on the companies vehicles or any other use of the Spreadmark trademark will cease.
