Group Audits – IAASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on March 16-20, 2020, the IAASB, after making amendments in response to comments received during the meeting, approved the Exposure Draft (ED) of proposed ISA 600 (Revised) and related conforming and consequential amendments for public exposure. The ED will be issued in mid-April with a comment period of 120 days.

In finalizing the ED, the IAASB continued to discuss whether it is sufficiently clear how the standard described the involvement of component auditors. On balance, the IAASB was satisfied that the draft sets out acceptable proposals on all significant areas for this project and that it is appropriate to proceed to seek stakeholder views whether the proposals could be effectively implemented. The IAASB also discussed possible matters to be addressed in the explanatory memorandum that will accompany the ED.
