On June 2, 2021, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) published a feedback statement after a public consultation. Stakeholders expressed broad support for the standards, and the resulting auditor’s report, and indicated that the standards have met the IAASB’s objectives.

The stakeholder feedback statement summarizes key themes and views shared with the IAASB through the 2020 Auditor Reporting Post-Implementation Survey as well as a roundtable discussion held in September 2020. The survey, roundtable, and related outreach solicited perspectives on implementation and specific aspects of the revised auditor reporting standards. Three of the key areas of focus for stakeholders were key audit matters, going concern and other information in the auditor’s report. The IAASB’s Auditor Reporting Implementation Working Group is considering the feedback in developing its post-implementation review recommendations for the IAASB’s consideration in September 2021.
