International Standards for Internal Auditing stipulate that Chief Audit Executives must implement a quality assurance and improvement program on all aspects of the Internal Audit Activity allowing for continuous monitoring of its effectiveness. This program includes both internal and external assessments.
Among the external assessments stipulated by Standard 1312, the Certification which is renewable every three years guarantees the Executive Board and other stakeholders of the Organization long lasting and sustained professionalism of the Internal Auditing Activity.
