Each lawn care facility must fill out and submit the Full Desk Audit forms when making an application to move from the Baseline IPM Accreditation level to the Introductory IPM Accreditation level or if they were at the Introductory level and failed to pass their On-site Audit. An auditor will review the information submitted and develop an Evaluation Report. The decision to approve a facility for advancement will be made by Plant Health Atlantic Council based on the Evaluation Report received.
A facility can apply only once for a Baseline Desk Audit.
Full Desk Audit forms must be completed annually and submitted before the end of the calendar year (December 31).
All forms must be complete and the registration fee received before the Auditor will review the application.
Submit only new or revised promotional material or client handouts.

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR 2015
CONTRACTED APPLICATIONS TO SPORTS FIELDS & GOLF COURSES
To avoid confusion do not include any product(s) used under contract for applications to sports fields or golf courses on the form (LMF1) used to report your list of residential and business properties. Information on these applications (products used and the size of areas treated) should be reported on a separate sheet.
Note that all forms and the application fee must be submitted before the Auditor will review your Full Desk Audit.
Commencing in 2015 and as approved by the Plant Health Atlantic Council; the Desk Audit fee will cover one (1) request by the auditor for additional or clarification of submitted information. Any further requests for follow-up or an appeal for additional review would mean a minimum $100.00 surcharge to the facility. If there are 2 consecutive failures to meet audit criteria the facility will be demoted back to baseline accreditation status
