Read Frequently Asked Questions

But now, because of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), they must certify their company’s financial statements. Also, each year they must certify the effectiveness of the system of internal controls mandated by the Act. In the past, top management could claim ignorance of their organizations’ operational failures. This no longer holds. Now lack of knowledge of problems is not an excuse and top management is now risking civil and criminal penalties as large as 5 million dollars and 20 years in jail.

In October 2003 the SOX-Q/E Team was formed to identify how ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001: 2004 can be used to reduce the risk that CEOs, CFOs and the Board of Directors face when complying with SOX. Note that any comprehensive quality and environmental management system such as the Malcolm Baldrige Award criteria can be used in place of the ISO standards.

SOX mandate a system of internal controls to manage risk in the organization. A system published by the COSO Committee in 1992 provides the basis for internal controls used by many organizations. This system is the foundation for good governance which preceded SOX. There are five components of the COSO internal controls:

  • Control environment
  • Information and Communication
  • Risk management
  • Monitoring
  • Control Activities

In this presentation I will describe the key elements of SOX, discuss the components of COSO internal controls and show how the requirements of ISO 9001 can support COSO and help with compliance to SOX.
