CPDA Adjuvant Certification fees

What are the CPDA Adjuvant Certification fees?

Application and Renewal fees are listed below.  Application fees are due once a product is approved for CPDA Certification and provides certification for a period of three (3) years.  A Renewal Certification process is conducted and invoiced every 3 years after the initial approval.  For convenience, the invoicing of annual maintenance fees have been discontinued.  The Application Fee and the 3-year Renewal Fee have been adjusted to compensate for the elimination of the annual maintenance fees.  For CPDA Members, the new pricing does not reflect an increase in cost over a 3-year period.

Application Fee

  • CPDA Members:  First time application approval for each product – $600
  • CPDA Members:  Application for sublicensing of each product – $250
  • Non-Members:  First time application approval for each product – $800
  • Non-Members:  Application for sublicensing of each product – $350

Three-year Renewal Fee

  • CPDA Members: Three-year(3) certification renewal fee for each standard product – $500
  • CPDA Members: Three-year(3) certification renewal fee for each sublicensed product – $200

  • Non-Members: Three-year(3) certification renewal fee for each sublicensed product – $300

A product may be subject to a re-certification fee if a chemical or compositional change of the product impacts one or more of the voluntary standards, or if new information or manufacturing changes impact the toxicity profile of the product.
