Tennant, Asinta’s Partner in South Africa, announced that they achieved both the ISAE 3402 Type 1 and Type 2 Audits, underscoring their dedication to maintaining the highest standards of service and internal controls. This accomplishment sets them apart, as very few benefit consulting and administration firms have attained this level of certification, highlighting their unique position in the industry and unwavering commitment to excellence.
The ISAE 3402 is a global assurance standard for reporting on controls at service organizations. It is designed to provide your organization with a thorough understanding of Tennant’s control environment, focusing on:
- ISAE 3402 Type 1 Audit
This audit evaluates the suitability of the control’s design at a specific point in time. It ensures that control objectives and activities are properly designed to address and mitigate relevant risks.
- ISAE 3402 Type 2 Audit
Building on the foundation of Type 1, the Type 2 audit goes a step further by assessing the operational effectiveness of these controls over a defined period. This ensures that the controls are not only adequately designed but also consistently applied and effective over time.
Why this matters

Compliance and Transparency
These audits offer transparency into control activities and processes, ensuring that all adhere to industry best practices and regulatory requirements. This, in turn, supports clients’ compliance efforts and reduces the due diligence burden on their organization when partnering with Tennant.
Tennant’s ongoing commitment
