Don’t forget that the transitional provision in place regarding the multi-operating centre accreditation (MOCA) audit ratio and head office audit requirement is coming to an end on 31 December 2019.
This means that ALL MOCAs expiring after 31 December 2019 will fall under the version 5 audit ratio, which includes an audit of the Head Office. The annual Head Office audit, which must be undertaken and passed first as part of the audit process, applies regardless of whether or not vehicles operate from that location.
MOCA audit breakdown and ratio:
|Version 4||Version 5|
|Number of operating centres||Total number of audits required annually||Number of operating centres||Total number of audits required annually|
|1-3||1 audit at each||2-4||2 audits|
|4-15||3 audits||5-15||3 audits|
|16+||20% sample||16+||20% sample – no change|
