All our registered auditors are experienced professionals with solid backgrounds. Besides their own professional experience, HQAI’s specific requirements are:
- Demonstrated skills in management system auditing according to ISO standards (ISO 19011). This needs to be corroborated by either a qualification in management system auditing in another sector or the successful completion of a dedicated training.
- Demonstrated knowledge of the CHS, normally requiring the successful completion of the CHS Alliance online course.
- The successful completion of HQAI’s specific training,
To maintain their registered status, auditors have to participate in at least two audits annually.
Lead auditors are auditors who have a significant practical experience of HQAI’s audit. At a minimum they must have taken part in two audits as registered auditors and be positively upraised by both the Lead auditors with who they have worked and the client organisation.
