ICCASA provides management system auditing services for industry compliance. Compliance audits are focused on compliance and conformance but are also performance based, adding value for continual improvement. ICCASA can assist you to conduct independent internal audits (first-party audits) on behalf of your organization, which can be used to monitor and evaluate conformance of your implemented management system.
ICCASA also conducts second party external auditing services such as supplier/contractor audits, performed on behalf of an organization on its suppliers/contractors. One of the best ways to meet your monitoring obligations under OHS legislation, is to have an effective contractor management system in place. ICCASA uses skilled Auditors that are certified by SAATCA (a SANAS-accredited ISO 17024 Certification Body for Persons) to perform management system audits
