The compliance auditor is responsible for helping protect an organization's assets by conducting internal audits and inspections to ensure that the organization's equipment and operations are in compliance with laws, corporate guidelines, best practices, and contractual agreements. The auditor may work alone or as part of a team to examine records and inspect practices, document the state of affairs, note potential problems, and make recommendations to management regarding methods to improve compliance. The auditor then conducts follow-up inspections to ensure that suggested changes (that have been approved by management) are implemented and executed properly.
