Compliance Audit Management
Many regulations require organizations to implement an internal auditing process as part of the compliance monitoring process to verify compliance with the regulations themselves, the organizations own procedures & practices and the maintenance of necessary standards. ICAO also recognizes the very significant contribution that auditing can make to the effectiveness of an organizations compliance monitoring process.
To be effective, the audit process should be appropriately managed to serve the needs of the business and audits should be undertaken by individuals who have the necessary technical competence, auditing skills and personal attributes. However, understanding the basic principles of auditing is a pre-requisite both to the management of an effective audit process and the development of auditor competence.
