Use of APCA Member Auditor Number Guide
APSCA ASCA: Can sign a social compliance audit report using their APSCA ASCA number if they are present
at the facility being audited and working under the supervision of an APSCA Registered Level Auditor (RA) or
CSCA. The RA/CSCA present at the audit must have:
Overall responsibility for the audit
Put their APSCA # on the report
State what Member Firm they are working on behalf of
Sign the audit report
Please note, if an ASCA signs and puts their APSCA Member Number on an audit report without a supervising
RA/CSCA also being present and placing their APSCA Member Number on the report, this will be considered
an ethical violation and will be reported to APSCA’s Integrity Team. If an audit contains less than APSCA’s
deﬁnition of a Social Compliance Audit, an APSCA Member Number can NOT be used.
It is the responsibility of each Member Number to develop a process to identify why they did or did not use
an APSCA Member Number on a report. If reported to the Disciplinary Board for misuse of APSCA Member
Numbers, the Member Firm will need to communicate why their auditors used an APSCA Number on an
audit which does not fall within APSCA’s deﬁnition of a Social Compliance Audit.
APSCA issues Membership Certiﬁcates and Cards to auditors upon achieving CSCA status. Your card should
be presented to management upon arrival at an audit. Advise management they can log onto APSCA’s
website to validate your identity as an APSCA Member Auditor, which includes your photo, auditor level, and

the Auditor’s Member Number (8 digits only e.g. 21745678 - no preﬁx is required) and surname to access
Note: APSCA Member Numbers are personal to the individual auditor and will remain with the
auditor throughout their Membership with APSCA. If an auditor begins working with another Member
Firm, the number remains unchanged. However, it is both the Member Firm and Member Auditor’s
collective responsibility to alert APSCA to any change in the employment relationship. Please contact:
If an Auditor is asked to include their APSCA Membership Number inappropriately,

sanctions imposed by APSCA’s Ethics & Integrity Program.
