International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3402 (ISAE 3402) titled “Assurance Reports on Controls at a Service Organisation” is an international assurance standard that describes Service Organisation Control (SOC) engagements. It was developed by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and published by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).

ISAE 3402 was developed as an international assurance standard public to assure a certified service provider’s clients that the service provider has adequate internal controls over financial reporting. Clients can look to the ISAE 3402 to understand the adequacy and operating effectiveness of a service provider’s controls.

Clients of an ISAE 3402 attested service provider  will be assured that the service provider has undergone an independent assessment in accordance with international assurance standard of whether adequate controls were placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively.

BDO's ISAE 3402 attestation ensures that our clients and their auditors have access to the same information to meet their auditors’ requirements.
