Public Comment Sought by July 16th on Plan Supporting Strong Ethics in Global Economy

Apr 16, 2018 | New York, New York | English

The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) seeks public comment by July 16, 2018, on its Proposed Strategy and Work Plan, 2019-2023.

Leveraging the completely rewritten and significantly strengthened International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards), the proposed Strategy and Work Plan projects the IESBA’s vision for the Code in the global economy. The IESBA’s future priorities and actions will be guided by three strategic themes:

  • Advancing the Code’s relevance by keeping it fit-for-purpose for a rapidly changing world, and further strengthening ethical conduct and independence standards;
  • Deepening and expanding the Code’s impact and influence through increased global adoption and implementation; and
  • Enriching the IESBA’s perspectives and capacities through proactive stakeholder dialogue and co-operation.

The consultation paper was developed following extensive, wide-ranging engagement with stakeholders, including regulators, national standard setters and professional accounting organizations.

Please submit your responses by July 16, 2018 to ensure your views are considered.
