In the case of bundled markets, a classification in status I to III is made for the entire bundle.
Based on the audit results of the inspected branches, the respective bundle and the resulting random sample size for the following audit interval (12 months) is classified. Failed audits are not counted towards the fulfilment of the random sample size.
If no QS conformity is found in a market during an audit, a re-audit is carried out within six weeks. If the re-audit also fails to achieve at least status III, the random sample size for the entire bundle is increased to 20% during the current audit interval. If the additional neutral inspections in the current audit interval are no longer feasible in terms of time, they will be postponed in full or in part to the next audit interval.
