Future Climate Info’s Data Quality and Processes Praised in External Audit

Independent audit by renowned environmental consultancy reveals robust and secure approach to residential and commercial property risk reporting.

Future Climate Info (FCI), the innovative environmental risk report provider, recently invited Ashfield Solutions to undertake a detailed, independent examination of FCI’s reports, data and quality processes.

While FCI was confident that reports complied with industry good practice and guidance for its clients, they wanted an external view to better understand how they compared in the marketplace in terms of quality and suitability for the residential and commercial conveyancing market.

Ashfield Solutions are an independent national environmental consultancy with a highly respected team of professionals and a wealth of experience in environmental due diligence, land remediation and flood risk.

Because of their independence, they are frequently asked by their clients to provide an objective second opinion on environmental risk reports, from risk screening products, through to more detailed risk assessment and recommendation reports. This made them a natural choice for us when seeking an external audit team.

The full audit team included subject matter experts for flood risk, GIS, data management, business information systems and land quality assessment.

They examined and compared residential and commercial environmental report formats; the capture, storage and quality processes in managing and updating the data and the methods for how this data is then screened and interpreted to form the guidance for conveyancers.
