2005 Record Year for First-Time Certifications

Bookmark and Share

There were 111 NAID Members that achieved NAID Certification for the first-time in 2005 with about a dozen audits remaining in the last half of December. There are currently 251 NAID Member locations that are NAID Certified, which constitutes approximately one-third of the total number of NAID member locations.

Between first-time NAID Certifications and Re-Certifications, NAID auditors are conducting on average of 20 audits a month; or about 1 every business day.

With the introduction of unannounced audits and the unrelenting pace of new companies becoming NAID Certified, the number of audits per month could double by the end of 2006.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A 2006 NAID Certification Application will be posted to the NAID website next week. All first-time or renewal applications for NAID Certifications should use this form. The changes to the entire program are outlined in an article in the December 2005 edition of NAIDnews™ mailed earlier this week.
