FLA Accredited Monitoring Organizations and Assessors

The FLA Board of Directors accredits both monitoring organizations and individual lead assessors for its Independent External Assessment program for a period of two years, which is renewable for successive two-year periods. The qualifications for Independent External Assessors are outlined in the FLA Charter. Assessors are accredited for specific regions in which they document and display (through shadow auditing conducted by the FLA prior to accreditation) experience and expertise. Lead auditors are individuals with sufficient experience to direct and manage an assessment team and submit the required reporting. All assessors must demonstrate independence, impartiality, and a high degree of rigor and thoroughness in assessing compliance for all areas outlined in the FLA’s Workplace Code of Conduct.
