All candidates interested in participating in one of the above sessions have to complete their online CV in the auditor portal in advance.

Please send registration requests to



Please send your auditor’s application including completely filled out CV (Version 6) to a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the requested course. Please have in mind that in order to pass the IFS exams it is of utmost importance that the applicant knows the IFS standard as well as the IFS evaluation scheme very thoroughly. According to the general IFS exam regulation it is normally mandatory for the applicant to first pass the written exam before he or she is allowed to take part at the oral exam. However, since we would like to give you the opportunity to build up auditor capacities very quickly and without spending too many travel costs we will offer a combined exam session. This means that the applicant will take part at both the written and oral exam even though the written exam will not be evaluated immediately. Please note that in case the auditor fails the written exam, after it has been evaluated at a later point, the oral exam will then be automatically nullified. By offering a combined exam session we are hoping to give you the chance to build up / increase your auditor capacity very comfortably.
