To further support Assurance Providers in navigating the application of the AA1000AS v3, AccountAbility developed a supporting resource – Guidance on Applying the AA1000AS v3 for Assurance Providers.
This supplementary resource provides additional guidance to ensure clear understanding of AccountAbility’s Principles-based Assurance Process – including:
- A Flow Chart outlining the sequential AA1000AS v3 assurance process and risk mitigation suggestions.
- Detailed content sections on implementation within the Preconditions, Conduct Engagement, and Issue Statement process phases.
- A sample Assurance Statement outlining a potential format for Assurance Providers seeking to issue an AA1000AS v3 assurance statement – providing an illustrative example as to how the assurance process is put into action.
