On December 17, 2020, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) released its three quality management standards. The standards promote a robust, proactive, scalable and effective approach to quality management and mark a significant evolution of the existing quality control standards.

The suite of standards includes:

  • International Standard on Quality Management (ISQM) 1, Quality Management for Firms that Perform Audits or Reviews of Financial Statements, or Other Assurance or Related Services Engagements;
  • ISQM 2, Engagement Quality Reviews; and
  • International Standard on Auditing 220 (Revised), Quality Management for an Audit of Financial Statements

The standards become effective on December 15, 2022.
