Certificate Maintenance

Hi Advisera Team,
I have bought the ISO 27001& ISO 22301 toolkit and it's really amazing. I have some questions regarding the annual cost of the certification (22301).

1 - The certification body has set 2 days for surveillance audit. what is cost for the second and third year and what is the cost of recertification (Roughly)?
2 - What happens if for some reason the organization didn't pay for the annual subscription for two years for example and then wanted to re-certify after that.
3 - Is there any hidden cost in the process of yearly audit and recertification audit?

1 - The certification body has set 2 days for surveillance audit. what is cost for the second and third year and what is the cost of recertification (Roughly)?

There is no standard value for surveillance and recertification cost, so this information you need to ask directly to your certification body. Normally contracts with certification bodies are set considering a full certification cycle (i.e., certification audit and surveillance audits), so this information about costs may be included in the contract clauses (the recertification cost is similar to the certification cost). For comparison, you may use quotations from other certification bodies.

For further information, see this material:

2 - What happens if for some reason the organization didn't pay for the annual subscription for two years for example and then wanted to re-certify after that.

First is important to note that there is no such thing as an annual subscription for certification bodies. To keep your certification, you need to undergo surveillance audits at scheduled times, or your certification will be suspended, and in case of prolonged delay (that will be less than two years), the certification will be canceled, and you will need to undergo all the certification process again.

3 - Is there any hidden cost in the process of yearly audit and recertification audit?

Some hidden costs you need to pay attention are related to the auditor’s travel costs (if he or she is out of your town), as the client will be responsible for his or her lodging, and the auditors’ fee related to his or her experience in the client's industry because their feedback is considered more valuable.
