Calculating audit time can be a complex process that takes into consideration a range of factors. Audit time is calculated considering the size, complexity, risk and nature of the organisation. The certification body uses a range of information to calculate audit time including the published International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Mandatory Documents (MD), specifically IAF MDs 1, 5 and 11, where relevant to the scope of certification.

JAS-ANZ has developed these self-directed online courses to support certification bodies and other interested stakeholders in understanding the requirements and to be more effective in their calculation of audit time for their clients.
