ISCC audit procedures

The ISCC audit procedures are compulsory for auditors. ISCC checklists can be found in the client section

The ISCC audit procedures are based on the requirements laid down in the ISCC System Documents. The auditor must complete the audit procedures to prove evidence of compliance of a system user with the requirements. The procedures should be used by system users to prepare for the audit as well as for mandatory internal audits.

ISCC EU

The audit procedure „Farm/Plantation“ has to be applied for individual certifications of farms or plantations and sample audits of farms/plantations in the framework of the certification of a First Gathering Point or Central Office.
The audit procedure „Point of Origin (waste and residues)“ has to be applied for individual certifications of points of origin and for sample audits of points of origins in the framework of the certification of a Collecting Point.
The audit procedure „Chain of Custody“ has to be applied for audits of First Gathering Points, Central Offices, Collecting Points, Processing Units, Logistic Centres, individually certified storage facilities (Warehouses), and Traders, as well as for sample audits of external storage facilities and dependent collecting points. For sample audits, one procedure has to be completed for each audit.

All procedures contain chapters on Basic Data, Management System, Traceability, Mass Balance and GHG Emissions. Sub-chapters contain further requirements that may be only relevant for specific types of operations.

It is strongly recommended to carefully read the guidelines provided in each audit procedure, and to ensure that for all relevant scopes of certificates all applicable requirements are checked.

The ISCC checklists can be found in the client section of the ISCC website.
