All auditors have to undertake a formal auditing qualification, as well as training against the standard being certified. Then they have to be assessed by the Auditing body (us) to ensure they have the experience and qualifications for each element within the standard. They need to maintain many compliance requirements including; insurances, training and audit logs, performance appraisals, peer auditing reviews and checks like working with children and police check. An audit team will usually consist of a lead auditor and may include a support auditor and or trainee. Where technical experts are required they may also be a part of the audit team. Sometimes JAS-ANZ or the scheme owners may attend the audit as part of our compliance requirements. All auditors before accepting your audit must sign a declaration of no conflict of interest or bias, prior to the audit being allocated to them.
