RECOGNISED AUDIT COMPANIES


SIZA endorses, on top of its own requirements, the auditor’s recognition programme as designed by The Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA) as the platform for its own audit scheme. The Auditor Competency reference tools describes WHO can perform audits and will be used as the basis for the recognition of auditors for the SIZA programme.  Audit bodies must independently submit their registration to APSCA for the equivalence process and only those who go through and completed the programme successfully, will be recognized by SIZA.   To learn more about APSCA, please follow the link:  www.theapsca.org

 

This will ensure the independence of the audit bodies from the SIZA programme and the robustness of the process.  A Service Level Agreement between SIZA and the Audit Bodies will be put in place once they completed the APSCA requirements.

SIZA is committed to establishing processes to ensure that the SIZA Code monitoring and measurement can be carried out in a manner that is consistent with the SIZA Standard and the SIZA Audit Process & Methodology.
