A remote audit is the same as an on-site audit, but the auditor engages with you via technology. It can still cover document and record review, tours of your premises, interviews with workers and presentation of findings by using a range of technology platforms including:
Live web streaming technology such as Zoom, MS Teams, etc.
Live streaming paired with mobile technology such as a smartphone or tablet with video capabilities (ex: WhatsApp, Skype etc.);
Live streaming paired with smart glass technology and video headsets.
SACAS Ireland works with you in advance of the audit to ensure underlying technology is in place and compatible.

Our remote audit approaches.
We offer two main approaches for remote auditing:
The auditor is off-site, auditing from a SACAS Ireland office, or from their home.
The auditor is with you at one of your locations, remotely auditing another one of your sites, performing interviews, reviewing documentation and records, or observing processes and activities with your team
Regardless of approach, and depending on the individual audit requirements, we use different technologies for an immersive audit experience. This enables you to collect data safely, access new areas and delivers the most effective experience for you.
How does a remote audit work?
Remote audits may be considered at any stage of the certification process. Here are the three simple steps involved in your SACAS Ireland Remote Audit.
Step 1: Planning
From the beginning we will work together to get the right audit approach for you. We will discuss the proposed approach, taking into consideration scheme specific requirements and your technology infrastructure, to ensure we can deliver an effective audit.
Once our approach is confirmed, we will schedule a date, and our audit team leader will start the detailed audit planning process with you. This includes agreeing the technology and audit methods used and confirming the final audit plan.
Step 2: Conducting the remote audit.
A successful remote audit relies on adequate connectivity (i.e., voice and video) to ensure the communication between you and the auditor is stable.
Once your connection is up and running, audit evidence will be collected via interview, review of documentation and records (via screen sharing) and observation of processes and activities (via video sharing if possible). All evidence will be reviewed and reported to support the audit findings and conclusions – the only difference is it will be done using remote techniques.
Step 3: Audit reporting
In addition to a standard on-site audit report, remote audit reports will also include details about the remote auditing methods that have been used and will clarify the effectiveness of the audit in achieving the stated objectives.
