March Certification Tips

February 24


We are thrilled with how much SIP Certified has grown - that also means inspectors have more to review. To make sure every applicant meets the deadlines, we ask that you coordinate a specific date with your inspector.

  1. Call or email your inspector to select a specific date between March 15 and July 15
  2. Login to the database
  3. Click Get Started
  4. Below Appl. click the icon (to the right of the property name)
  5. Under Inspection, Inspection Scheduled, select the agreed upon inspection date
  6. Under Inspection, Inspector, select the Inspector name from drop-down
  7. Click Save
  8. Your inspector can now see your Standards documentation

Find Your Inspection Type

Find out what kind of inspection you have so you know which Standards to document.

  • Full (Cycle 1) = complete all Standards documentation and onsite inspection
  • Documentation (Cycle 2 or 3) = complete Standards marked “D” and review D+O (inspected if you have the Impromptu inspection [48 hours notice of an onsite inspection])
  • Doc+Onsite (Cycle 2 or 3) = complete Standards marked “D” and “D+O” and onsite inspection

*All applicants should complete new Standards marked with “!”

What to Review This Month

Update your certification a little each month to prepare for your March 15 - July 15, 2022 inspection. Log in to the database to read each specific Standard as you implement and document them. Update this month:

  • 1: Conservation & Enhancement of Biological Diversity
  • 7: Pollution & Waste

*Unless noted, documentation should reflect practices from Dec. 1, 2021, through March/July 2022.
