Application process

The application process helps us to get to know you!

Thank you for your interest in our services.

The application process for our services includes five steps:

Step 1: kick-off the application process by completing the form below.

Step 2: the quality assurance team reaches out to you with the full application form and tips how to complete it.

Step 3: duly fill in the full application form and send it back to HQAI.

Step 4: pay the application fee.

Step 5: The audit contract will be drawn up on the basis of the information provided in the application form and a preliminary analysis by a Senior HQAI auditor. Once the audit agreement letter is signed, we are partners!


Reach out to the quality assurance team at the secretariat:

Before kicking-off the application process read through these questions:

Which service would you like to apply for?

Read POL114 Third-party quality assurance policy to understand what our different services entail.

Should you wish to apply as a Group, please carefully read POL500 Independent quality assurance for Groups.

Do you need financial support to pay for an audit service?

The Subsidy Fund can cover up to 90% of audit costs.

Read these documents and check if you are eligible for a subsidy!

What is an application fee?

The processing of your application is conditioned to the payment of a non-refundable application fee (after step 3). This fee will be deducted from the final invoice if your organisation decides to continue with the audit process.

This application fee allows for HQAI to conduct an in-depth analysis of the application and come up with a tailored financial proposal. The fee depends on the size of the organisation (see Registration_fees-2019-09-17).
