5 Key points from 2009 audits Although a smaller number of audits have taken place over the last 2 years, the proportion of those needing no follow-up action or with only minor non-conformities is significantly larger. The shortcomings that have been identified are similar to those in the past. However, there have been several examples this year where ENG2s either not being fully completed (negative results, ENG number, reasons for restrictions) Chaperonage policies are not always followed. Sometimes certificates have been issued in accordance with company wishes rather than MCA standards. UK audits – first round complete. Revised arrangements needed for routine reassessments. (Kirsty Wicks study)
