On January 19, 2022, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) released further conforming and consequential amendments to the IAASB’s standards resulting from the new and revised quality management standards, which were released in December 2020.

The conforming amendments remove actual or perceived inconsistencies between the IAASB’s suite of standards and the quality management standards. This allows the IAASB’s full suite of standards operate in conjunction with each other and without confusion, which is especially crucial given the importance of firm-level quality management to the consistent performance of quality engagements.

The standards covered do not include the International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Conforming and consequential amendments to the ISAs were finalized and released in December 2020 alongside the quality management standards.

The conforming amendments to the IAASB’s International Standards become effective as of December 15, 2022.
