Farms that are certified according to Fairtrade Standard may apply for FLP membership on the base of the FLO-Cert-inspection. This is due to an agreement between FLP and FLP-Cert, the certifying organization of the Fair Labelling Organizations. It shall avoid double audits. Majority of FLP-criteria are covered by FLO-standard. Those criteria that are not covered will be checked through FLP by an unannounced spot check. By signing the FLP-contract producers agree with to this procedure. Producers pay the audit to FLO-Cert. FLO-Cert forwards the audit report to FLP. The FLP-Certifying-Committee decides on the base of this report independently if the production methods match with FLP Standard. The producer pays the member fee to FLP Association but does not pay any extra audit costs.
