AuditOne™ Process

The AuditOne™ process is simple and can be managed through the AuditOne™ platform. If you are already approved to one of the AuditOne™ standards listed above, and have an AuditOne™ approved Certification Body, you will need to inform them, in advance of your audit, that your certification is now part of the AuditOne™ process.

The process followed includes:

Invitations - Brand owners invite suppliers to set up profiles on the AuditOne™ Platform.

AuditOne™ Platform - Connect with buyers, suppliers and Certification Bodies on a global scale, creating transparency throughout the entire end supply chain.

Audit Requests - Start sharing documents and requirements with your connections. Audit quotes can then be requested from an approved Certification Body, like us, certified to this standard. The quote will be sent to you within 5 days and you can then schedule the audit and pay. The audit date is recorded on the platform and all parties are advised.

Audit Process - The Certification Body conducts the audit and posts it on the platform.
