Internal audit

The Group’s Internal Audit department is certified as fully compliant with International auditing standards by the Institut Français de l’Audit et du Contrôle Internes (IFACI).

The IFACI certification, which was first obtained in 2012, was renewed in 2015. It is officially recognised and promoted by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and the European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA).

This certification rewards the Group for fulfilling all the requirements of the French version of the Institute’s International Professional Practices Framework, divided into three broad categories:

  • Attributes (independence, objectivity, etc)
  • Planning and performance (risk-based audit plan, audit methodology, etc)
  • Monitoring and supervision (quality assurance programme, etc).

At a ceremony which took place on 27 November 2012, the Group’s internal audit department received the 50th IFACI Certificate. The Group now belongs to the inner circle of prominent certified companies which include Alcatel Lucent, Areva, Danone, France Telecom, Aéroports de Paris, Air France KLM, Veolia Environnement or EADS.
