But there is uncertainty in other areas, such as how reports should be verified by multi-disciplinary teams of accountants and environmental experts. Respondents also generally agree on how auditors should act when the amount or quality of environmental data presented is limited, and on how auditors' statements can be made as user-friendly as possible.
