There are two types of ISAE 3402 reports: Type 1 refers to the design and existence of internal management measures, and Type 2 certification which reports on the effective functioning of internal management measures over a defined period.

ISAE 3402 is a global assurance standard for reporting on controls at a service organisation. It was developed by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) to provide a standard that auditors can use to ensure the integrity of an organisation's internal controls. The examination report is issued by an independent accounting and auditing firm and covers an examination of the description of the system, the design of the controls and the operating effectiveness of controls over a period of time.
