  • Qualification standards can be measured by a point system or a percentage system. Companies may decide to use either or possibly both for final evaluation.´╗┐For the purposes of this audit, a percentage is given. Generally, the qualification standard by percentage is determined by the client requesting the audit. GMP Consulting Services requires a score of 90 percent for compliance qualification, however certain situations may be taken into account such as the severity of the findings or violation. In such cases, GMP Consulting Services requires a score of no less than 85 percent.
