<h2>0. Preliminaries</h2>
This sub-policy describes how Organisation Assurers ("OAs") conduct assurances on Austrian organisations.
It fits within the overall web-of-trust or assurance process and the Organisation Assurance Policy (OAP) of CAcert.

b. Organisations must not be revoked by a competent authority with direct oversight over the organisation.
<h2>3.2 Documents</h2>
The organisation has to provide documents to prove the essential standard of Organisation Assurance as defined in the policy:<br>
a. The primary mechanism to prove existence is to get an official extract from the official register, either via an online interface
or via physical means (organisation is asked to carry the costs)<br>
b. Where not available, an official document will be required from the company, subject to such checks as defined by the AO.<br>
c. Extracts from the official register should not be older than 4 weeks.<br>
d. The AO maintains a list of which specific documents and tests can be acceptable for the certain types
of organisations.<br>
f. The OA can ask for additional documents if needed to validate required information for the assurance action.
<h2>3.3 COAP</h2>

a. The OA must keep all documentation for 10 years.<br>
b. Signatures from organisation officials must meet the following requirements<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; i.&nbsp;&nbsp; as legally specified for the type of organisation<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ii.&nbsp; as specified in the official documents (f.e. the excerpt from the register)<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; iii. as delegated within the organisation (proof of delegation needed)
<h2>3.4 Meeting</h2>
The OA can decide to a demand a face to face meeting in the office of the requesting organisation, to verify
the authorisation of the request.
<h2>3.5 Price</h2>
