Extension of Time to Participate in IESBA’s Technology Surveys

Nov 4, 2020 | English

In light of the continuing constraints stakeholders are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IESBA is extending the closing date for responses to its Technology Surveys to November 25, 2020.

Earlier last month, the IESBA’s Technology Task Force launched two online surveys to seek stakeholder input on key ethical questions arising from technology developments in relation to:

  • Technology and complexity in the professional environment; and
  • The impact of technology on auditor independence.

Responses to the surveys will help guide the IESBA’s consideration of next steps in relation to these two topics at its December 2020 Board meeting.

About the IESBA

The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) is an independent global standard-setting board. The IESBA serves the public interest by setting ethics standards, including auditor independence requirements, which seek to raise the bar for ethical conduct and practice for all professional accountants through a robust, globally operable International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards).

The IESBA believes a single set of high-quality ethics standards enhances the quality and consistency of services provided by professional accountants, thus contributing to public trust and confidence in the accountancy profession. The IESBA sets its standards in the public interest with advice from the IESBA Consultative Advisory Group (CAG) and under the oversight of the Public Interest Oversight Board.
