It is also based in one of the countries of the European Continent.
After the visit to the facilities, the Evaluation Committee approved granting the award and during the first three years following the adherence to the Program, the mentioned Evaluation Committee will follow up the Project, assessing the facilities and resources presented by the candidate Company as well as requiring the necessary documentation.
