3 APPLICATION REVIEWED
Based upon information gleaned from your application, as well as your discussion with the company representative, a Rabbinic Coordinator who is an expert in your field of production will be assigned to oversee all matters that relate to your company. He will set a mutually convenient appointment to visit your manufacturing facility(ies) for an on-site physical inspection.
4 THE INITIAL VISIT
An initial, thorough inspection of the entire manufacturing facility(ies) will be performed by a Rabbinic Coordinator. This inspection gives us a comprehensive understanding of the unique nature of your facility(ies), so that your certification can proceed in a streamlined fashion. At this initial visit, the rabbi will detail the procedures that you will need to follow to receive and maintain kosher supervision.
5 RESOLVING FINAL DETAILS
Having finished his inspection, the Rabbinic Coordinator will issue a report to our headquarters. At this time, your annual fee will be set. It is determined on the basis of numerous factors, including the nature of your facility(ies), its location, and the amount of work required on our part. If any matters remain outstanding, we will work with you to resolve them.
6 REGULAR MONITORING
Part of our agreement with you involves monitoring your facility(ies). The OK has over 300 field representatives around the world. One of these experts located in your area will be assigned to visit your facility(ies) on a regular basis. We make every effort to arrange these visits in the most economical way possible. In addition, one of our Rabbinic Coordinators will make an annual inspection of your facility(ies).
7 THE CONTRACT
A contract is now drawn detailing the agreement between the OK Kosher Certification and your company. The contract is sent to you for your review and your signed approval.
Please note: Before you are certified, you will be required to submit additional forms detailing your ingredients and products information.
8 KOSHER CERTIFICATION BEGINS
Upon return of the signed contract along with the fee for your first year of supervision, we will issue a Kosher Certificate to you. The certificate details which of your products or facilities are under OK certification, and grants you the right to display our registered OK symbol on the certified products.
Congratulations! You are now kosher certified by the OK Kosher Certification, the most respected kosher supervision agency in the world. Your company’s name is now listed in the Internet based OK Kosher Food Guide and you can look forward to the announcement of your new certification in the Kosher Spirit, the international magazine of the OK.
