Auditing the Auditor

Due Diligence using our knowledge of standards and verification protocols/procedures has given Failsafe Canada Inc. the reputation of excellence and integrity. For clients that want to double check the work of other auditors for purposes of due diligence, Failsafe Canada Inc.can review the previous auditor’s documentation to assure the quality of the verification and related assertions.

Verification Services for GHG Reduction Projects can verify (“ex post”, after the start of the project and generation of emission reductions) of GHG project assertions, such as amount of tonnes of CO2e reduced or conformance with a specific standard or program (e.g. ISO 14064, CDM Approved Methodologies). We also perform pre-verification “test audits” to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement before the actual verification.

Organizational GHG Inventories and Management Systems can verify GHG inventory assertions such as amount of tonnes of CO2e emitted or conformance with a specific standard or program (e.g. ISO 14064, Alberta GHG Regulations). We also perform pre-verification “test audits” to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement before the actual verification.
