The extension applies only to facilities that have submitted a completed application package to participate in the GCP and are still waiting for an authorization audit on September 30, 2021. A completed application package includes:

• Completed and signed application form

• Current list of plants in production

• Written Pest Management Plan, including Pest and/or Production Modules where required
