Date recorded:

At its meeting on March 5-6, 2018, the AASB provided input to the CPA Canada nominee on the IAASB on issues related to the IAASB’s project to amend ISA 315 (Revised), Identifying and Assessing the Risks of Material Misstatement through Understanding the Entity and Its Environment, including:

  • the inclusion of introductory paragraphs;
  • the definition of inherent risk factors; and
  • requirements related to identifying and assessing the risks of material misstatement, including a separate assessment of inherent and control risks.

The IAASB expects to approve an exposure draft of revised ISA 315 in June 2018. The Board anticipates approving a Canadian exposure draft shortly thereafter.
