What’s Involved in an Audit:
A CSIA Certification Audit first involves a genuine desire by you to improve the way you do business and to sustainably grow both revenue and profits. One great place to start is to attend the two-day certification workshop before the start of one of the CSIA’s executive conferences held in April/May each year. Here you can learn all about the sections of the standard and the kind of information auditors’ look for during a certification audit. You will walk out of the workshop with a list of prioritised gaps in your processes to focus on and an excellent idea of the work you will need to do in preparation for a certification audit. If you would like some outside assistance in preparation for an audit we offer these services and ensure that the vital separation between consulting and auditing is in place.
Depending on your size a certification an inital audit normally takes around two days. The great thing about a best practices and benchmarks audit is that you are scored against each section of the standard and you can compare yourself against a cohort of similar sized CSIA businesses across the globe.
