RSB Guidance: RG-2020-02 Reactive Guidance on RSB-PRO-70-001: audit schedule changes due to conditions beyond the control of POs and CBs
An RSB certified PO asked about the RSB position regarding changes related to the RSB audit type and/or schedule due the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Most areas of the world have
travel restrictions and companies have their own policies to protect their employees.
Ensuring the health and safety of all people/staff involved in RSB audits is a priority, in line with RSB principles. Therefore, this guidance covers the conditions under which the RSB allows CBs to change audit schedules and/or to perform remote audits, considering travel restrictions due to
the COVID-19 pandemic.
