On April 18, 2017, the Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB) announced that effective April 7, 2017, Brian Hunt, CEO of CPAB, will serve as the Chair of IFIAR’s first elected board.

This is a very positive time in International Forum of Independent Audit Regulators (IFIAR)’s evolution to a more proactive, leading influencer of audit quality globally. In April 2016, IFIAR Members approved setting up a permanent Secretariat in Tokyo.

The opening of IFIAR’s permanent Secretariat and the successful implementation of governance changes that move the organization from an Officer led to a Board led organization mark an important step forward for IFIAR. Effective governance, combined with a professional, dedicated Secretariat that provides organizational continuity, enhances IFIAR’s ability to deal effectively and efficiently with global audit quality matters.
