Case Study: Washington Winegrowers Association
Integrated 2nd and 3rd Party Auditing

The Washington Winegrowers Association developed the Sustainable WA Winegrape Standard following two decades of an educational sustainability program. 


The third-party audit and certification process was awarded to EAGLE Certification Group, whose submission included use of a digital assessment platform – QuantumLeap. 


The concept of the growers being able to access a mirror digital assessment to do their own internal inspection first - a self-assessments - ahead of the certification audit, was considered a favourable added-value in the submission.

How it works: Self-Assessment

  1. Washington winegrowers that choose to participate in the certification program first submit their registration online

  2. Then they undertake their own self-assessment: assessing themselves against the Standard in preparation for the audit

  3. Winegrowers gather and add required evidence documentation to prepare for a successful, value-added audit.

Having completed the self-assessment, growers are better prepared to understand and ensure their conformance to the Standard. To achieve certification, vineyards must meet minimum mandatory requirements, receive a minimum score per section of the Standard and meet an overall minimum percentage of conformance.

The Auditor's Next Steps

The auditor reviews the self-assessment responses and comments online ahead of the audit time. This assists the auditor with familiarizing themselves with the vineyard’s sustainability program and enables them to provide a special focus on areas in need of improvement.

Vineyards that do not conform to the standard's minimum requirements have the optional opportunity to enhance their overall sustainability system by completing corrective actions  - these are reviewed by EAGLE’s technical team.

The Standard enables the Certification Body to deliver a number of advantages:

  • There is a continual improvement focus within the audit process.

  • Certification managers can view and manage the process of the audits.

  • Technical reviewers can access the audit from anywhere, and complete their reviews.

  • Communication is improved using automated emails to flag status changes.

  • Audit reports and certificates can be automatically generated by the standard owner.

  • Impartiality and integrity behind the certification – it’s more than just a piece of paper.

  • Vineyards have the opportunity to review their own process as part of the self-assessment and compare those processes with the outside perspective of the auditor.

  • Continual improvement and system maturity can be tracked over time.

  • QLBS enables BI and AI for future analysis.

"...for growers, the platform was the perfect ‘one-stop shopping’ experience allowing grape growers to apply, assess and then monitor progress in a single location".

More visibility, more insights, more value

The QuantumLeap assessment and reporting platform has been used for second party auditing across many other industries including tourism, supply chains, indigenous business communities and sports clusters. In every case the 'prime' organisation is benefitting from the transparency afforded and the ability to monitor and manage the verification.

Plus, the business community itself is afforded more than a certification, but a system to help them improve their business.
