SCC is a non-profit Crown Corporation and fees for its accreditation programs are in place for cost-recovery purposes. Each applicant pays an application fee and an assessment fee. Once accredited, a customer pays an annual fee and is responsible for the fees of the reassessment activities carried out by SCC. Travel and accommodation costs of the assessment team are aligned with Treasury Board of Canada guidelines. These fees are presented more specifically in the Fee Structure annexes of the program-specific Accreditation Agreement which is available on request.
