Dos and Don’ts when submitting recipes for assessments
When submitting your recipes for assessment (which you need to do for the comprehensive assessments rather than the starters) you need to purchase our Admin Fee Deposit, then download and fill out one of our CPSR Forms. Once you have filled in the form, it needs to be sent to email@example.com along with all the relevant documents. Here are some handy tips with regards to submitting your recipes for assessment -
Did you know? Not submitting your recipes correctly means the assessment process will take longer – so getting it right first time is important if you want your assessment done ASAP.
DO read our Assessment Page and Assessment FAQ to make sure you are as clued up as possible – if you don't, your assessment will most likely be delayed due to errors, and you will be liable to pay a £25 + VAT admin charge for re-submission.
Do download and read our Example Form to help guide you, especially if it's your first time or if you have an extensive recipe.
DO submit all the technical documents for each ingredient as attachments to your email – if this takes a number of emails, this is fine. (Please also read the blog article about this. Submitting your documents incorrectly can also lead to delays.)
DO submit your weights for the full batch that you make each time rather than each individual product (soap / balm etc).
DO be patient and please remember that our lovely Assessment Advisor Team are trying to help as many people as they can in the shortest time possible.
DO send only ONE submission form per email, along with all relevant documents for that product form. This enables the Assessment Team to keep your submissions separate (if purchasing more than one assessment).
DON’T send links to websites for documents.
DON’T send zip files, scans or screenshots
DON’T use percentages. Please use grams or ml/drops (20 drops or more must be measured in ml or better still, grams).
DON’T use spoons, cups or pinches as measurements, everything needs to be exact and those measurements are not precise enough.
DON’T send documents in via the post. Everything report-wise is done via email so please edit the form digitally and send your form and documents over via email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
