Putting the public interest at the heart of our work: Acting with urgency, purpose and responsiveness

  • IAASB - Assurance Image

Apr 21, 2021

On April 21, 2021, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) published its Public Report detailing its progress to support the public interest between July 2019 and December 2020. During this 18-month period, the IAASB completed five major standards aimed at enhancing audit and assurance quality, adopted a four-year strategy focused on the public interest, and established a new work plan focused on emerging issues.

The IAASB also responded to a new environment sparked by the global pandemic by issuing guidance and engaging with a broad range of stakeholders in order to sustain trust in audit and assurance.

The Public Report showcases the IAASB’s efforts to be a responsive, agile and innovative standard setter, closely connected with its stakeholders. The report highlights completed and in progress standard-setting projects, other new initiatives to respond to stakeholder needs, and our efforts to improve the agility of the standard-setting process. The report also includes reflections from IAASB Chair Tom Seidenstein on his first 18 months in this role.
