Enform, as a Certifying Partner, is responsible for the quality assurance review of
all audits submitted for the purpose of certification, recertification, and maintenance
of a Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR). Alberta Employment,
Immigration and Industry (AEII) has developed a standardized SECOR QA review
form. The form will be adopted by all Certifying Partners in an effort to ensure
consistency in QA policies and procedures.

As SECOR holders with Enform frequently hire external auditors to perform their
SECOR audit, Enform has adapted the new SECOR QA review form to meet this

The review forms are completed by Enform audit reviewers. Please view the forms
to become familiar with how your SECOR audits will be reviewed. The
implementation date is May 1, 2008.

included in the article External Auditors Conducting SECOR Audits. Please read
this article as it may answer many of your questions. If you still have questions
please visit the Auditor Support Site Forum as there will be a discussion going

If there is missing criteria (insufficient auditor notes/recommendations) the
reviewer will highlight the areas and put an X for the item.

to re-score the audit.
   Questions 1.2, 1.4, 2.5, 3.2 are not applicable for SECOR employers who are
   owner/operators. This is indicated by an asterisk (*) on the SECOR Review Forms.

   Questions 5.1 – 5.4 are not applicable if the SECOR employer does not go to site

   second table.
