The Federation of European Accountants (Fédération des Experts-comptables Européens, FEE) has announced a roundtable to further discuss improvements to the functioning of audit committees, which are considered essential for the quality of financial information provided by companies. The roundtable follows the publication of a discussion paper on the same topic in June 2012. It will be held in Brussels on 5 February 2013.

The discussion paper published in June 2012 was intended to be a starting point to enhance thought-leadership on the future evolution of audit committees within Europe. To foster the debate, FEE is now offering the conference on 'How to improve Audit Committees further?'.

This high level conference will bring European decision makers and relevant stakeholders including audit committee members, auditors, investors and regulators together to discuss further improvements of the functioning of audit committees. Stimulating closer cooperation throughout the audit engagement, especially the exchange of high quality information between audit committees and the external auditor, is thought to be of great benefit to the company and to the external auditor. To this extent, and considering that one or more members of an audit committee are often trained accountants, FEE is aiming at enlarging and widening the debate.

The conference is free of charge. However, as places are limited, attendance is upon invitation only. Should you be interested in attending, FEE invites you to submit your interest indicating your name, title and organisation by sending an email to Iryna.deSmedt@fee.be
