  • Auditing Roundtable merges with IIA
  • IIA seeking Director for EHS Audit Center
  • Steps to BEAC Certification
  • Tribute to Jim Ball

Last year BEAC's two founding organizations, The Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA) and The Auditing Roundtable (AR), entered into discussions regarding a possible merger and establishment of an Environmental, Health, and Safety Audit Center (Center), to serve as a membership-type organization. The Center would be a specialty center in The IIA, similar to other centers established over the years. 

On July 8, 2015, The IIA and AR signed merger agreement documents. See the news release.

A merger of The IIA and AR will also end the existing joint venture which established BEAC. The IIA will now acquire BEAC as a wholly owned subsidiary, and establish a legal structure for BEAC that will comply with the accreditation requirements of the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB).  Current BEAC assets will be restricted for use in promoting and enhancing the BEAC certifications. 

We have compiled some Frequently Asked Questions specifically related to BEAC.

Additional questions posed by AR members regarding the merger can be viewed here.

The IIA is currently seeking a Director for the new EHS Audit Center. The position description and information about how to apply can be viewed here.


Steps to BEAC Certification

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Jim Ball, former BEAC Board member and Chair. Jim Ball was a great contributor to the profession of EHS auditing and the development of BEAC. He was a tireless volunteer - and a good friend. Read Jim Turner's tribute.
