Companies which are not TIC Council members may put forward candidates for examination following completion of a registration process and payment of a registration fee.
Companies must be independent inspection organisations providing third-party inspection services. These services must include the inspection of bulk cargoes of animal, marine and vegetable oils and fats for custody transfer. Companies must possess the ability to provide training and ongoing assessment of inspectors which meets the requirements of the certification programme. Companies may be required to demonstrate this ability.
Companies which wish to apply for registration should download and complete the following form:
The completed form, with supporting documents, should be scanned and returned to email@example.com. Please ensure that all sections are completed.
When the completed application form has been received, an application fee of EUR 600 will be charged. An invoice for this sum will be issued by TIC Council and will include instructions for payment. This fee must be paid before the application can be considered and is not refundable.
Companies must provide the following information with their request for registration:
- Company ownership and registration details
- Brief description of services provided in relation to bulk cargoes of animal, marine and vegetable oils and fats
- Names and contact details of company safety and training officers
- References from a number of clients (normally three) to which independent inspection services have been provided
Non TIC Council member companies which provide this information and satisfy the requirements noted above will be registered with TIC Council and will be permitted to submit candidates for examination and certification. Registration will be subject to renewal after five years, and a reduced application fee of EUR 300 will be payable if the renewal application, together with supporting documents, is received and the renewal fee paid, within 3 months of expiry of the previous registration.
