The following fees apply for certification of an organization's Scope of Certification in the O-TTPS Certification Program.

Currently, there two tiers for certification - Self-Assessed and Third-Party Assessed. The annual certification fee is based on the scope to be certified and the annual revenue for the organization's declared Scope of Certification. The fee is inclusive of the initial certification and triennial re-certification. There will be a separate fee for each Scope of Certification an organization would like to certify and have listed on the Certification Register.
