You are able to 'lock' your answers, once you have updated and completed your SAQ 5.0.


By enabling you to have more control over documents used as evidence in your SAQ declarations for multiple questionnaires within your organisation, the answers and evidence you provide by completing the Headquarter SAQ 5.0 can be locked once the documents have been approved by the validation team. You can decide how other SAQs within your organisation are being answered, meaning, the same answers will be applied to any new and updated SAQs of your organisation.


1. Sign in to your account on the SUPPLIERASSURANCE platform
2. Use the search box in your dashboard to locate the now completed SAQ 5.0 marked as your Headquarter location
3. Select 'View'
4. Scroll further down to view your previously given answers for individual questions
5. Select the arrow pointing upwards, on the left hand side of the category name to expand and view all answers
6. View each answer and select 'Lock HQ template answer'
7. A notification will appear for you to confirm your choice of locking the answer or to set the question to be editable
8. To lock your answer, select 'Lock'
