ASACB Remote Audit Policy

As we approach the end of 2021, ASACB would like to update all certified organizations that the IAQG alleviation to perform remote audits is set to expire on December 31, 2021. We are planning to perform all audits on-site as of January 1, 2022. We will inform all our certified organizations should the alleviation for remote audits be extended beyond the current expiration date.

In the meantime, we also understand that some areas are more at risk than others and each company may have unique risks and concerns. In limited cases ASACB will consider a request for remote audit. This will be done on a case-by-case basis only if one of the following applies:

  • There is a national or local government COVID-19 restriction that would prevent an on-site audit.
  • There is a client imposed COVID-19 restriction that applies to all external visitors that would prevent an on-site audit.

Please understand if the need for a remote audit is communicated and approved within 30 days of the first day of the audit ASACB will attempt.

Note: This statement was previously emailed to all ASACB clients on Tuesday, December 21, 2021
