  7. Wait for verification from an SSA inspector that your store meets all SSA guidelines. If an application fails inspection, they will receive an inspection report detailing what corrections need to be made to meet SSA certification requirements. Once these requirements are met, the applicant then may resubmit for reassessment and verification.
  8. Once the store application passes inspection, the retailer will receive a congratulatory email confirming they have passed and payment will be requested to complete the application.
  9. Once payment is processed, the retailer will receive an email with instructions for shipping SSA New Member Welcome packet.
  10. The New Member Welcome Packet is shipped and the store location will be added as an SSA Certified Safe location on the website.
