ResponsibleSteel™ seeks Assurance Panel members

Help us make sure that ResponsibleSteel certificates are credible and justified

The first audits against the ResponsibleSteel Standard will be carried out very soon. Third party auditors will conduct steel site assessments, consult with external stakeholders and make certification decisions. However, before they can make such decisions, their audit report will be reviewed by an independent Assurance Panel. Only if that Panel is satisfied with the quality of the audit report and its conclusions, can the auditors decide whether the site should be certified or not. The Assurance Panel thus plays an important quality control function in the ResponsibleSteel programme.

We are in the process of recruiting Assurance Panel members and are inviting applications from individuals that meet the following criteria:
• Long-standing expertise in one or more of the following areas: steel making, environmental or social issues in heavy industries, certification and auditing
• Not working for a steel company or a steel sector association, to avoid conflict of interest.

Assurance Panel members will be trained on the ResponsibleSteel system and on their role, and will be paid a fixed fee for each audit report they review. We expect the time requirement to be about 0.5 to 1 day per month. If you are interested, please send an expression of interest email and full CV to
