If you feel that the world of Fair Trade has its very own language – do not worry! With this glossary we would like to guide you through the specific technical terms used by FLOCERT, Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).

Confirmation audit

A confirmation audit is either a focused or unannounced audit and might take place between an Initial and a Renewal or in between two Renewal audits to confirm compliance. A confirmation audit is conducted if FLOCERT’s assessment of the organisation’s individual needs requires it. This assessment is based on: Compliance with the Fairtrade Standards, Fairtrade Premium amount received/ paid, and the individual setup.
