Second Party Audits
IQC-The ISO Pros
Auditing is one of the most crucial factors of maintaining and keeping a company’s financial health in-check. Without it, several businesses, corporations, and organizations would be blind as to what’s happening with their company’s finances. This is the same reason why the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) set up a few milestones for companies to see and to check whether or not they’re up to the global general standard for businesses.
There are a few kinds and types of auditing and they’re mostly classified as First Party Audits, Second Party Audits, and Third-Party Audits. Understanding them is key to determining what type or kind of audit you need for your company or your business.
First Party Audits
This type of audit is performed within a specific organization – and its goal is to determine and to measure the capabilities, strengths, as well as areas of improvement of the business or divisions part of it.
Companies can opt to hire an independent organization to perform the internal audit for them and it’ll still be part and considered as first-party audits
Second Party Audits
Second Party Audits, on the other hand, is the type of audit that has a supplier-customer relationship. For instance, your customers can perform an audit of your company to see if you’re conforming or complying with the contract you’ve set, the same way you can audit your supplier.
Second Party Audits are important because they can greatly influence the decisions of either the customer or the business (from the supplier).
Lastly, a Third Party Audit is the type of audit wherein no supplier or customer is involved – and the auditing body would be an independent organization. The goal of Third Party Audits is to ensure that your business or your company is complying with the general standards set.
This is imperative because should the Auditing Body find errors within the company’s actions, there could be corrective action involved or worse, penalties if the requirements are not met.
Do You Need Second Party Audits?
Many companies and business owners fail to see the importance of Second Party Edits because of the fact that they’re just in relation to the supplier and the customer. However, this is important because this audit is a part of what will determine the decisions of the customer to the business being patronized or the business to the supplier.
