• Pre-audit Preparation, providing lists of documents and records to review prior to conducting an
audit, and items to have available for review during an audit.
• Rulebook, providing audit criteria based on the key elements of most EMS models, with guide notes
to be used by the auditor to assess conformance with the criteria.
• Scoresheet, allowing quick recording of the organization’s compliance status.
