IAASB Project Proposal – Emerging Forms of External Reporting

  • IAASB - Assurance Image

Jan 08, 2018

On January 8, 2018, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) released "Guidance on Key Challenges in Assurance Engagements Over Emerging Forms of External Reporting (“EER”)".

The IAASB’s Emerging forms of External Reporting (EER) Task Force developed a Feedback Statement to highlight the responses received on the August 2016 Discussion Paper, . This Feedback Statement provides an overview of the key messages from the responses to the questions in the Discussion Paper. The responses have helped inform the IAASB as to what its next steps should be to progress with its project in this area. Developing guidance to help overcome the Ten Key Challenges identified in the Discussion Paper will require close collaboration with a wide range of stakeholder groups.

To further its work in this area, the IAASB approved a project proposal in October 2017. The project is intended to develop new non-authoritative guidance to address key challenges, identified by the IAASB, which arise in the performance of assurance engagements over EER in applying ISAE 3000 (Revised). This project was made possible through a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation with support from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

Review the guidance on the IAASB's website.
