    d) ensure that the results of the audits are reported to relevant managers; ensure that relevant audit results are reported to workers, and, where they exist, workers' representatives, and other relevant interested parties;

    I am confused whether "where they exist" applies to both workers' representatives and other relevant interested parties.

    1.
    - workers' representatives where they exist
    - other relevant interested parties where they exist

    2.
    - workers' representatives where they exist
    - other relevant interested parties

    Which is correct 1 or 2 ??

    Workers' representatives really equals union personnel. There may be other interested parties too. Like a regulatory body, for example. So, the "where they exist" means if unions are represented (they may not be) but you can bet a regulatory agency would need to know! (answer 2)

    Thanks for the answer.
    So you mean "where they exist" only applies to workers' representatives.
    Actually I understood it as 1 because I thought there may be or may not be other interested parties.
    I am still a bit confused but it helps a lot. thank you.

    Good point. Did you identify any when addressing the "Context of the Organization"? That's the kicker here.
