May 2022

Relates to conforming amendments to Other Canadian Standards resulting from the approval of CSQM 1. Paragraphs 21, 23 and 26 have been amended. In adopting ISRS 4400 (Revised) as CSRS 4400, Canadian amendments were made to remove paragraphs related to quality control that did not apply, as Canadian Standard on Quality Control (CSQC) 1, Quality Control for Firms that Perform Audits and Reviews of Financial Statements, and Other Assurance Engagements, did not apply to CSRS 4400. As a result of issuing CSQM 1, the Canadian amendments that were made to paragraphs 19 and 30 were removed. See Com­pleted Pro­ject.

The changes are effective for engagements beginning on or after December 15, 2023.

Note: The above sum­mary does not in­clude de­tails of con­se­quen­tial amend­ments made as the re­sult of other pro­jects.
