How much will my audit cost?
After the audit has been completed we will send you an invoice for the audit. The cost of an audit varies due to the region the audit was conducted in, length of the audit, and auditor expenses. We do not know what expenses will be incurred until the auditor has submitted their invoice.
When will I receive an invoice for the audit?
API bills the facility for an audit after the audit has concluded. The auditor submits their invoice with all incurred expenses associated with conducting the audit to API for review, and once it has been accepted, API will bill the facility. This process can take up to 90 days after the audit has ended.
