  1. 1. The Auditee Bill of Rights January 14, Friday 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM ESTWhy Should You Attend:As an audited organization, do you stand up for your rights? Or, to avoid conflict, do you just accept whatever comesyour way during the audit experience? Maybe it is time for an Auditee Bill of Rights, so organizations know what theyshould expect and demand from their auditors and certification bodies.A “bill of rights” is a list of rights that are considered important and essential by a group of people. A prime example isthe first ten amendments to the United States Constitution, referred to as the Bill of Rights. In this webinar our pro-posed Auditee Bill of Rights won’t be a legal document. Instead, it is a list of economic rights from the perspective thatthe auditee is the customer. Patterned on the “Patient” Bill of Rights in the healthcare industry, the eight areas of ourAuditee Bill of Rights are: Choice, Information, Access, Participation, Respect, Confidentiality, Appeal, and Responsi-bility.Attend this webinar to understand what your rights are as an auditee and how to apply these at proper places andtimes.Date: January 14, Friday 2010Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM ESTDuration: 60 MinInstructor: Larry WhittingtonLocation: Your office or conference room (no need to travel!)
