Why work with IIA Belgium?
In today's competitive business landscape, maintaining high-quality internal audit functions is paramount for the success and sustainability of any organization. To ensure your internal audit department is operating at its best and adhering to the standards, it's crucial to invest in External Quality Assessment (EQA) services.
IIA Belgium joins forces with IFACI – a leading expert in the field of EQA with 400 completed EQA missions in public and private organizations – to offer the most comprehensive EQA approach which supports not only conformance to Standard 1312, but also provides an objective assessment of the internal audit activity’s effectiveness.
What are the benefits of External Quality Assessment?
An External Quality Assessment (EQA) evaluates conformance with the Definition of Internal Auditing and the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards), and also whether internal auditors apply the Code of Ethics.
Obtaining an EQA provides evidence to an organization’s board, management and staff that the audit committee and internal audit activity are engaged regarding the success of the organization’s internal controls, ethics, governance, and risk management processes.
Top 5 reasons to perform an EQA:
- Adhere to the Standards
- Provide independent assurance

External Quality Assessment
An external quality assessment, or EQA, evaluates conformance with the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), which includes the Code of Ethics, the Core Principles, the Definition of Internal Audit and the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (the IIA Standards).
The Self-assessment with Independent Validation (SAIV) approach is a more cost-effective Quality Assessment solution. The organization’s internal audit activity completes its self-assessment per the Quality Assessment Manual for the Internal Audit Activity. We provide an independent validation of the internal audit activity’s self-assessment.
