  1. Existence: that the controls exist or stayed;
  2. Effectiveness: that not only does the control exist hence that it is effective;
  3. Continuity: not only does it exists and is effective but the control operates throughout the period of intended reliance. Whether the auditor is carrying out the compliance tests, several evidence to confirm that these assertions is relevant.
