|German term or phrase: Revisionsstelle|
|Die Organe der Gesellschaft sind:|
A. Die Generalversammlung
B. Der Verwaltungsrat
C. ***Die Revisionsstelle***
Is this the auditing authority?
As your text states, the Revisionsstelle is a body (=Organ) of the company, and therefore neiter a company in its own right nor an authority (this sounds as if it was part of IRS). This is obviously a Swiss company, as the term Revisionsstelle is not used under German law, but is the technical term in accordance with art. 727 of the Swiss Obligationenrecht, which prescribes the mandatory bodies of companies.
The function within a company encharged with internal auditing is called audit(ing) department, see example below:
