ASSET’s TCU audits clients in the industry—airlines, charter companies and aerodromes— to measure their operations against international regulations and operating standards. But we don’t stop with the audit; we start with it, and work with you to help you discover new ways to fly smarter, safer.
Our approach to aviation auditing is cooperative; with you we fashion sophisticated audit plans, tailored to your capacities and goals. We help you move beyond compliance toward elegance and excellence of operation and service, on the ground and in the air.
To us, the auditor is the crash investigator before the crash occurs. The audit is a critical component of any assurance program. Aviators are used to being checked — whether by government compliance audits, internal quality checks or performance measures, or third party assurance programs—aviation relies on audits and they are commonplace in our industry.
This is how we go about conducting critical safety and quality audits in aviation.
Our Audit process
We follow the International Auditing Standard 19011 when conducting our audits.
ISO defines an audit as a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining audit evidence and evaluating it objectively to determine the extent to which the audit criteria are fulfilled.
An audit is a type of investigation that is:
A systematic, independent and documented process can be measures–if you can measure something, you can track its performance. This is how our audit process improves systems, improves safety and improves the industry.
What are our auditing principles?
There are six fundamental auditing principles all qualified auditors should know and practice:
We ensure our auditors follow these principles through policy, written procedures, careful selection and recruitment of our audit teams—to get the right people with the right attitude. We use effective competency-based training and continuous professional development, and we carefully check each report.
How do we conduct an effective audit?
We use appropriate audit techniques—there are many available in the auditor’s toolkit: reviewing documents, interviewing people or observing what they do. But these methods alone will not lead to effective audits unless our three key principles guide them:
In which segments do we audit?
What types of audits do we do?
How to book us?
What do our clients say?
“Our business requires us to be audited by a number of organisations as well as the Regulator (CASA). ASSET's very professional approach to auditing based on extensive aviation background experience, ensures a probing but accurate audit. Having been a check pilot in a major airline also gives Mat (CEO) the understanding to put relevancy into questions relating to training and checking requirements.”
