Aviation technical audit, authorized by the competent authority:
IOO "International Association for Quality" - "SovAsK", "Certificate" of accreditation of the technical audit body No. SSAQ for carrying out work on technical aviation audit.
Technical audit belongs to the field of voluntary certification. This type of audit is relatively new for Russia, while abroad it is quite developed. This type of activity is permitted by the International Association for Quality, SovASK "Certificate" of accreditation of the technical audit body No. SSAQ to carry out technical aviation audit. For the first time in Russia, technical aviation audit as a service was issued in 1999. in the "SovASK" Certification System.
The first certified experts in aviation technical audit in the Russian Federation were the specialists currently working in the Auditing Center "Risk Evaluation":
- Cherkassov А.N. - President;
- Makarova T.S. - Vice president;
- Novosiletsky V.A - Technical Director;
- Argunov A.B. - Executive Director:
- Smirnov U.K - Flight Department Director;
- Mikheev D.V. - Director of the Department of western aviation equipment audit.
Our specialists have rich working experience in Civil Aviation and in the field of a technical aviation audit, which is proved by corresponding certificates and licenses.
The essence of a technical aviation audit is in providing independent, objective assessment of the organization of aircraft' maintenance, flight operations, aircraft' technical condition, proficiency of flight and maintenance personnel and aviation facilities' compliance with the requirements of the regulatory documents acting in the Civil Aviation of the RF, the CIS and international standards.
The main clients of technical aviation audits are gas- and oil exploration companies as well as the others companies of America, European Community, Asia who works on the territory of RF/CIS: (Shell Aircraft Ltd, "British Petroleum", "Alcoa", "Rio Тinto Group", "TNK-BP", "Verkhnechonskneftegas", "Kazchrom JSC" etc.), as well as the European Bank for the Reconstruction and Development that use the services of the Russian and CIS air companies for the transportation of their specialists only after conducting of Flight Safety audit.
Our company mainly focuses on the activity dealing with providing services in the field of aviation audits and consulting especially for foreign clients. ACRE constantly perfect forms and methods of upgrading quality of the above services, introduce new technology tested by us and approved by our clients.
Our database and reliable sources of information enable Auditing Center "Risks Evaluation" to carry out long term monitoring of the auditing company' flight safety. The ACRE' experts constantly get online information related to all aviation incidents and accidents, their causes and immediately inform our Clients about it. 
Moreover ACRE informs its Client about all incidents and their causes with the aircraft of the same types which took place in the Civil aviation of the RF and the CIS. For example, if some air company used by our Client has got aircraft An-24, helicopters Mi-8, ACRE informs the Client about all incidents/ accidents with the above aircraft that took place in the RF/CIS and abroad.
Moreover, AC monitors the airline's implementation of those measures that the Federal Agency of Air Transport of RF (FAAT RF) requires from the Operators following the investigation of the incidents that have occurred.
The validity of aviation audits conducted by ACRE is six months. Nevertheless should ACRE conduct flight safety' monitoring of a certain air company, the validity term of the audit could be extended for another six months. In this case an ACRE' auditor goes to the air company for a 1-2 day inspection which gives our Clients a possibility not to have audits every six months and thus minimize expenses. In this situation ACRE submit an inspection report and recommendations to its Clients.
Regular customers of aviation technical audits are BP, "Gazprom-Neft" Group of Companies, Kazakhmys JSC, KCA DEUTAG DRILLING GMBH  (Germany), Allseas Engineering B.V. (Switzerland), GDK "Baimskaya" and many others.
A complete list of audits performed in recent years can be found in the "Audits" section.
It should be noted that the Auditing Center "Risk Evaluation" receives all permits for conducting an aviation auditindependently. The customer only needs to send an audit request and approve the submitted cost of audit.
After completing the audit within three days, the Customer receives a short summary of the audit results and, within 30 days, a full audit report in paper version and on electronic media.
Most of the Customers prefer to perform audits according to IOGP (Oil- & Gas Product, Aircraft Management Guidelines) standards, however, ACRE also performs audits according to its own standards of a particular Customer, according to IOSA, ICAO, etc.

In conclusion I'd like to note that the practice of attracting of the foreign aviation experts for conducting audits of Russia aviation enterprises that exists in a number of foreign companies who works on the territory of Russia has no legal basis.
Under the Russian laws all foreign aviation experts must be properly accredited within the Federal Aviation Administration of the RF (the Federal Air Transport Agency). Nevertheless it doesn't happen in real life, that's why all foreign auditors conducting audits of the RF air companies bear no responsibility for the audit' results and the consequences of their recommendations.
Only Auditing Center "Risks Evaluation" is the legitimate auditing Center for conducting aviation audits of airlines/aircraft of RF/CIS with the responsibility for the results of conducted work.
We are ready for fruitful cooperation with your organization and will be really happy should you use our services.
