Audits are carried out every 18 months against the Farm Quality Assurance Cereals Scheme Standard.
Participation in the NIFQACS is voluntary and membership is open to all Northern Ireland combinable crop producers and intermediate store owners who demonstrate compliance with the standard. NIFQACS is complimentary to the Farm Quality Assurance scheme for beef and lamb and inspections can be carried out jointly where applicable.
Membership fees are due annually and can be paid over the phone or via cheque.
Approved members are issued with cereals stickers annually to accompany a grain passport.
