In order to audit for an accredited certification program, auditors must meet certain basic competency requirements above and beyond having completed a lead auditor course. One way of quickly and efficiently demonstrating that you have met these competency requirements is through authentication through a recognized Auditor Authentication Body (AAB).
Authentication involves the submittal of evidence to the AAB of your training, work experience, audit experience, etc. This is a paid service, and will result in a certificate or auditor card indicating an auditor grade based on your level of experience, and can provide immediate confidence for a Certification Body of your credentials and ability to meet requirements.
PRI Registrar requires authentication for Aerospace, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 / OHSAS 18001.
PRI Registrar does not require authentication for ISO 27001 / ISO 27701, but preference will be shown to auditors who have been authenticated.
The AABs that we recognize are:
The APM Group: AS9100 / AS9110 / AS9120
Please have the following items available for upload:
