This Policy was adopted by the ASI Board on 6 March 2020 and updated on 1 June with a new Annex on Assessing conformance against the ASI Performance Standard using remote methods – considerations for auditors.

ASI recognises that the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation is evolving rapidly. ASI places a high priority on health and safety through the ASI Performance Standard, and likewise aims to ensure that our employees, contractors and stakeholders work and meet safely.

This interim policy, adopted by the ASI Board, clarifies the reasonable accommodations that can be made to audit plans in consideration of the current COVID-19 situation.

The policy is applicable to ASI Members and ASI Accredited Auditing Firms and is overseen by the ASI Secretariat.
