About Supervisory Quality Assurance

Supervisory Quality Assurance is a control function within the second line of defence. Its main objective is to provide management with assurance that supervision processes are being carried out in the most effective and efficient manner, consistently (i.e. harmonised/proportional practices across different sectors and also on a cross sectorial basis) and in line with best practice. To achieve these objectives, SQA officials carry out independent quality reviews on ongoing procedures and also assess and provide recommendations regarding new projects in the pipeline.

  • Assisting in other one-off projects and tasks which will require your involvement.
