“A successful audit is one for which the client has been fully and correctly prepared and has been conducted by an experienced and competent audit team.
The audit findings have been efficiently evaluated by a certifier resulting in certification being awarded within a satisfactory time frame”.
David Ogg 2016.

The role of Certification Bodies.
Ensuring that their auditors and both qualified and competent.
Auditors need to be qualified and this may include a number of qualifications, including successful completion of RSPO-endorsed courses.

The ultimate qualification of any auditor is entirely the responsibility of the certification body!
The CB must also ensure that their auditors are competent and invest as much time as necessary to support their auditors and to develop their competency. Auditors must also be honest with their CBs and ask for support and additional training as necessary.

Oil Palm Companies and industries in the supply chain.
Preparation for an audit is essential!
All delegates for both courses receive a comprehensive range of practical working documents in word, excel and powerpoint format to help them to prepare for an audit and as an invaluable source of information.
