It is IRCAs priority to ensure the safety of its Technical Assessors who travel the globe witnessing and assessing auditor training course deliveries. Consequently IRCA will not initiate the certification process with any training organisation whose head office is based in a country or region that IRCA believes may be high risk. Whilst IRCA will be guided by the information provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, all decisions in this regard will be made at IRCAs discretion.
Where an organisation’s head office is located in a low risk area but conducts the majority of its training in a high risk area, IRCA will carry out a risk assessment to determine whether it is appropriate to initiate the certification process. Where a training organisation is already approved and is based in an area that has become high risk after certification has been awarded, IRCA may conduct surveillance audits remotely until such time as the area is no longer considered high risk.
IRCA may, at its discretion, cease to certify an organisation, or course, if it feels that the remote surveillance is not providing adequate assurance of continuing adherence to the respective criteria. Please check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website for information on your country;
