Audit and Compliance Committee

The GWO Audit and Compliance Committee provides an independent appraisal and compliance function.

Its primary focus is to ensure the adequacy and effectiveness of the GWO certification process as adopted and used by third party accredited certification bodies. It also supports the Executive Committee to discharge its overall responsibilities and to deliver a robust framework enabling the certification process for training providers. The final key responsibility of the committee is to handle complaints and non-conformities.
