Compliance Audit

Compliance means adherence to rules, which is why a compliance audit always aims to identify to what degree an organization is committed to abide by certain guidelines. This often concerns adherence to voluntary codes of conduct; that is self-generated guidelines for conduct vis-á-vis customers or internet trading, for example. Other compliance audits verify adherence to legal requirements; that is legal compliance. This may concern areas such as the protection of resources, occupational health and safety, or quality.
