Audit Tool and Resources
Effective March 17,2020
Documentation only audits are the only audits that will be accepted for COR certification, maintenance or recertification purposes. This will be in effect until December 31, 2020. As a result, a revised audit tool of documentation only was required to be implemented for 2020.
In an effort to continually meet our member’s needs, CCSA has decided to offer two different audit tool options for 2020:
- 2020 CCSA Modified Audit Tool version 5 – documentation only (Excel-Based, continues to be free of charge)
- AuditSoft – documentation only (Software-based, associated audit licensing fee applies)
This provides members with a choice based on each organization’s individual preference and capacity. To register your 2020 audit and select the audit tool that best meets your organization’s needs, please complete the following registration.
Once your 2020 audit registration has been received, the CCSA COR Team will provide confirmation of your registration along with access to the 2020 audit tool of your choice. Important Note: if you have hired a CCSA Certified External Auditor to conduct your 2020 COR audit, please include their name and email on the audit registration form. This allows us to copy them on the registration confirmation and provide them with access to the audit tool of your choice.
Action Plan in lieu of Maintenance Audit
Action plans in lieu of maintenance audits have specific eligibility requirements and require prior approval from the CCSA. Before downloading the action plan template, please contact the CCSA COR Team (COR@ab-ccsa.ca) to discuss whether your organization meets the eligibility criteria. Applications to use this COR maintenance option must be received by March 31st each year. NOTE: for 2020 the application deadline was extended until May 31st, 2020.
