AMSA will be will looking at how you meet the conditions of your accreditation and auditing the processes followed by the you when you conduct a marine survey. They will ask for information about the management systems you are using and how these are followed as well as your record keeping procedures.

When you are audited, you will receive a letter advising you that the National Regulator is commencing a desktop audit of your accreditation.  Attached to the letter will be an Audit Request for Information form which you must complete accurately and within a specified timeframe. You will be required to explain your quality management system and how you follow your documented processes.

AMSA will review the information you have provided and might ask you to provide additional information or evidence so you must make sure that you understand what is being asked of you and how to respond appropriately.

If you don’t have a documented system and would like assistance or would like to commence developing your ISO99001;2015 system under the AIMS accreditation please contact us on
