Audit Quality – AASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on June 11-12, 2018, the AASB provided input to the CPA Canada nominee on issues related to the IAASB’s project to revise ISQC 1 and ISA 220, including: (i) the firm’s risk assessment process and how it is applied to the components of the firm’s system of quality management; (ii) the monitoring and remediation process, including how practitioners from smaller firms could implement the requirements; (iii) the proposed ordering of components in the standard; (iv) definitions of engagement partner and engagement team; leadership responsibilities, including need for the engagement partner to be actively involved in the engagement; and (v) engagement performance, including direction, supervision and review. The IAASB is expected to approve an exposure draft to revise ISQC 1 in September 2018 and ISA 220 in December 2018. The Board would approve Canadian exposure drafts shortly thereafter. The Board will continue to discuss these and other issues at future meetings.
