Business continuity of audits during the Covid-19 epidemic period


Following our previous communication dated 11.06.2020, the European Commission informs that the exception granted during the period of the COVID-19 epidemic, namely the possibility of carrying out renewal and remote monitoring audits, remains applicable.

The European Commission specifies that for countries in which travel restrictions have been lifted and then reapplied, due to the worsening health situation, the 5-month rule for carrying out renewal and follow-up audits on site in addition remote audits, will be applicable from the end of the month in which these restrictions were last lifted.
