Tell your auditor: Our compliance projects comply with IDW PS 951!

The scope of this audit is the customer-specific implementation and further development of the Compliance Suite. The certificate uses a standard issued by the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany to test the quality of service providers who implement internal controls for other companies.
