Your IFA v6 checklist documents

Generating your checklist documents to familiarize yourself with the standard and to customize your self-assessment/internal audit is a two-step process.

Step 1 determines the relevant documents.

Step 2 customizes the checklist by determining the relevant principles and criteria for you.

You will need to download Excel files at the end of step 1, we therefore recommend completing this form on a desktop computer or laptop (no mobile devices).

If your preferred standard or add-on is not yet listed here, the documents must be downloaded from the GLOBALG.A.P. document center instead.
