The Bus Operator Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) Auditor certification program has been developed by IRAB-QSA in conjunction with New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services to oversee the development and management of the program.
The certification program provides recognition for auditors who conduct audits on behalf of New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services to ensure that bus operators demonstrate that they meet the requirements of the BOAS certification as defined by New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services.

IRAB-QSA recognizes training completed with training providers who held/hold certification with us under our current name or previous trading names (RABQSA, QSA, RAB) for 10 years from the date the training was completed for our management system schemes, such as QMS, EMS, OHS, etc. Some of our schemes require that the training certificate to have been issued within the last three years. Please check the specific certification requirements for the scheme you wish to apply for. If your training was completed outside of the training requirement time, you will need to complete a relevant knowledge examination, if available.
If a knowledge examination is not available, you may substitute the knowledge exam with an audit log showing relevant audit experience. If you choose this method, we require that you show evidence of 10 audit days reflecting the specific scheme (e.g, QMS, EMS, OHS, etc.) and grade (i.e., auditor or lead auditor) you wish to apply for. Audits need to have been conducted within the past three years.
There are current agreements with IRCA/CQI, PECB, and the CCAA. Applicants must be able to demonstrate holding a current certification with one of the above mentioned bodies in order to qualify.
