The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) today released a public survey seeking broad stakeholder input to inform the development of its Strategy and Work Plan (SWP) 2024-2027. The survey can be downloaded from the IESBA’s website. Responses are requested by Friday, July 8, 2022.
“The accountancy profession plays a critically important role in supporting economic growth and stability worldwide in these uncertain and rapidly changing times,” said IESBA Chair Gabriela Figueiredo Dias. “The IESBA must therefore be open, agile and proactive in evolving the Code so that it remains robust and relevant in safeguarding public trust and confidence in the work of professional accountants as the context and the challenges change. The ultimate purpose of IESBA’s future SWP is to actively respond to the changing needs of the economic system by providing appropriate and relevant standards for professional accountants as they adapt their professional activities and work methods and evolve their services to meet those changing needs.”
The survey seeks input from all stakeholders on what key trends, developments or issues the IESBA should consider as it begins the process of developing its SWP 2024 – 2027. The SWP is expected to be finalized by the end of 2023 for release in early 2024.
