The IS-BAO Programme requires an independent third-party audit to achieve the registration, or when renewing (every two, or three years) or progressing to the next stage. Operators are responsible for selecting the qualified IS-BAO auditor, scheduling the audit and covering any fees or expenses agreed to with the auditor. Many operators base their selection on the auditor’s experience, costs, proximity to operator’s location, and schedule availability.
