Audit Service Provider Requirements

The Center for Offshore Safety develops documents outlining the qualification and training requirements for auditors performing third-party audits

ASP Requirements

 Audit Service Providers (ASP) accreditation and audit protocol documents – including certification requirements, auditor qualifications and accreditation criteria, and audit reports and templates - outline the requirements for auditors performing COS SEMS audits, the COS SEMS certificate requirements, and accreditation requirements for ASPs performing third-party audits and issuing certificates. Different editions of these documents are required depending on the auditee and its location (i.e., inside or outside the US OCS), as shown in this Applicability Table for COS Requirements Documents.
