On April 8, 2020, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) released conforming amendments to the IAASB’s International Standards as a result of the recently restructured and revised International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants’ (IESBA) International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) (IESBA Code).

The conforming amendments aim to align the IAASB’s International Standards with the revisions to the IESBA Code, thus ensuring that they can continue to be applied together with the IESBA Code.

The conforming amendments to the IAASB’s International Standards become effective as of July 15, 2020.
