Internal Audits

Internal audits provide an independent and objective assessment of WIPO’s business processes and systems, risk management, control and governance processes.

  • The 2012-2015 Internal Audit Strategy PDF, Internal Audit Strategy defines the priorities of internal audits, based on the Organization’s strategic goals.
  • WIPO’s Internal Audit Manual PDF, Internal Audit Manual establishes the key policies and procedures governing internal audit activity.

Internal Audit Reports

Internal audit reports are submitted to the Director General, the Independent Advisory Oversight Committee (IAOC), and the External Auditor.  Internal audit and evaluation reports are, upon request, made available to member states.
