SPC Benchmark Audits

InfoSizing's auditors are certified by the SPC to audit results produced using the SPC benchmark standards. Contact InfoSizing for details on the formal SPC benchmark audit process.

SPC Auditor Certification Process

SPC Certified Auditors have been granted the authority to provide test sponsors with an attestation of the compliance of their benchmark implementation and results. SPC results can only be audited by individuals who have completed the SPC's 3-stage auditor certification process.

  • Stage I

    An initial written exam is taken to establish that the candidate auditor has the required basic technical and functional knowledge. The exam, if successful, is followed by an interview to determine the candidate's eligibility to become an apprentice auditor.

  • Stage II

    The apprentice auditor works with a SPC Certified Auditor to gain hands-on experience of the benchmark audit process. This stage ends when the mentor auditor is ready to endorse the apprentice for certification

  • Stage III

    The qualifications of the apprentice auditor are reviewed by the Steering Committee through an interview. Following the certification interview, the Steering Committee votes on whether to certify the candidate as Auditor of the specific benchmark.

Complete details on this process can be found in the SPC Policies.
