  • As a reminder, the 2015 IS-BAO is valid for auditing purposes until July 1, 2016. On and after July 1, 2016 all audits must be conducted using the 2016 IS-BAO Audit Forms.
  • The Audit Procedures Manual and SMS Toolkit will be updated during 2016. An announcement will be sent out when the revision is complete on these manuals.
  • The Internal Audit Procedures Manual was discontinued as the Audit Procedures Manual is available to both operators and auditors.

We sincerely appreciate all those who helped IBAC with the final draft quality review of these documents. We received outstanding support from stakeholders in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Canada, UAE, Brazil, and China.

If you have any suggestions to help us to continually improve, please make these comments at Help Improve IS-BAO.

Pursuing excellence with you,
