Inspections are typically done by other CNG producers, but they may also be conducted by certified organic farmers, or non-certified producers using natural methods.
Inspectors should be familiar with your type of operation. For example, a beekeeper shouldn't inspect a livestock producer unless the beekeeper also raises livestock. Check out our tips on How to Request an Inspection.
You can easily find the other CNG producers near you using our brand new Find Inspection searchable map. (Requires you're logged into your certification account).All CNG producers agree to conduct an on-site inspection of another CNG producer annually. The searchable map identifies those who have not yet fulfilled this "work requirement' and also meet the additional criteria of not violating the rules against trading inspections and repeating the same inspector year after year.
If you're the first one to join CNG in your area - congratulations! Find details on alternative inspectors in the Inspection Guidelines.
