(4) If the auditor intends to rely on the internal control then he further has to record the system of controls in detail;

(5) If the system's record was provided by the client or was obtained through reading manuals, then the auditor must perform walk through tests to confirm the correctness of the record and also his own understanding of the system;

(6) The auditor then performs a preliminary assessment of the system, and if he is relying on controls then he performs a preliminary evaluation of those controls;
