Guidelines for Environmental Auditing: Statement of Principles and General Practices
|Publication Date:||1 January 1994|
The principles and general practices set out in this document apply to all aspects of the environmental auditing activity.
With the wide interest in environmental auditing and the range of interested parties, a number of different types of environmental audits are required to satisfy the range of objectives and interests that exist.
Note: There are a number of different types of environmental audits, depending on who is the client, the nature of the subject matter, and the objective of the audit. For example, where management requires assurance about the environmental performance of their organization, an audit of management systems might be conducted, including planning, operations, reporting, standards, and issues identification and management. In this way the audit may be used as a management tool to assess internal environmental performance and to determine where improvements can best be made. Further examples may include due diligence auditing, compliance auditing, and audits of environmental reports.
