  5. I've noticed that pricing structure is different from the prior year - why is that so?
    The new pricing structure has been simplified based on client feedback. Prior year registration was based on number of facilities in the organization. It is now simply based on the headcount of your organization. Organizations that were able to correctly follow the registration process in prior years should experience minimal to no difference in the fees.
