"But do I have time to get SIP Certified?"

November 10


We know your day is busy running your wine business and you wonder if you will have time to get SIP Certified. Completing the Self-Assessment takes less than three hours and helps you know if you are ready to take the next step to certification. To attain certification, you will need to implement and document all Requirements, earn at least 50% of the Management Enhancements Points, and complete the documentation and onsite inspection by July 15.

Time Required to Get Certified

The time required to complete the SIP Certified Standards documentation varies based on the size and number of properties you are certifying but typically your first year will take 60 – 80 hours. In future years you will just need 20 – 30 hours to maintain your certification.

Tools for You

We have a number of tools to help you successfully achieve certification from PFD printouts of the Prohibited Materials List, photos you will need, Required questions only so you know where to start, and a calendar to help you stay on schedule.
