About SSAE 18 (SOC 1) Reports SOC 1 audit reports are prepared in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 18. SOC 1 reports primarily focus on business process and IT general computer controls, which may impact internal control over financial reporting. SOC 1 reports are restricted use reports, which mean use of the reports is restricted to:

  • Management of the service organization (the company who has the SOC 1 audit performed),
  • User entities of the service organization (service organization's clients), and
  • The user entities' financial auditors (user auditor).

A Type 2 report covers a specific, established period of time and is a report on management's description of a service organization's system as well as the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls.
