Woolworths Quality Assurance (WQA)

The Woolworths Quality Assurance (WQA) Standard represents benchmarking of the Woolworths Quality program against global product safety standards and international retailing best practice. This Standard applies to all businesses who wish to supply into Woolworths.

BSI is an approved WQA Certification Body, with a large team of experts across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, USA, UK and Europe. We are trained and available to audit against WQA requirements and provide audits against WQA requirements for:

  • Accreditation
  • Certification checks 
  • Maintenance 

Where possible we can combine audits, so that we are able to deliver a professional audit experience in the shortest time possible and meet your compliance requirements.

The certification will be specific for:

  • The products the Woolworths Business Team have nominated you to supply
  • The individual premises from which these products are supplied
  • BSI will also provide you with a HACCP Certificate

How often will I be audited under the WQA program?

The WQA Certification Audit process will be ongoing, and associated audits will be carried out on a regular basis.
