As we continue into the year, COVID-19 has transformed the way we do business. While the pandemic impacted various Accreditation Bodies and certifications globally, all industries had to adapt to the new normal of operating their businesses remotely. Still keen on maintaining their certifications for either regulatory or commercial reasons, many organizations turned to new solutions that allowed them to continue meeting government regulations and industry standards.

Remote auditing solutions ensure that industries unable to facilitate on-site visits can still maintain compliance while complying with social distancing measures. Depending on local or customer requirements, remote audits can be done either fully or partially off-site. Collaborating with various Accreditation Bodies, SGS has worked towards alternate audit methodologies to develop processes and procedures to support remote audits wherever possible. In our current environment, remote audits can help minimize business disruption and ensure employee safety.


The objective of this webinar is to introduce remote auditing, outline its general requirements/criteria across all industries and prepare professionals for what to expect when a remote audit is conducted during COVID-19.
