Education and assistance

In our first two months of operation the ROC has undertaken:

  • two activities to introduce itself to organisations
  • four broad education campaigns targeted at organisations, their members or their auditors
  • six one-to-one meetings with organisations and peak bodies regarding compliance
  • two workshops regarding registration of auditors, which attracted 35 participants
  • two webinars, which attracted 75 participants; one regarding registration of auditors and the other on how to locate organisations’ records.

Public relations activity was also used to raise general awareness about our role. This included issuing public statements about who we are, what we do and our key inquiries and investigations.
