Internal Audit

The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority is required by EU legislation to monitor and assess the performance of its official controls. 

The Authority develops and refines its technical internal audit capability on an ongoing basis to benchmark the suitability, compliance and effectiveness of the discharge of its duties in performing official controls in the areas of sea-fisheries conservation, seafood safety and trade certification.

Audits are designed based on a risk-assessment methodology and implemented on a multi-year roadmap that is informed by this principle.

All audits carried out are subject to independent scrutiny and oversight, and implemented in a transparent manner designed to deliver increased consistency in operations with an overall objective of driving continuous improvement in internal systems and processes.
