Exposure Draft, Responding to Non-compliance with Laws & Regulations

IESBA
May 06, 2015 | Exposure Drafts and Consultation Papers
English

Comments due by: Sep 04, 2015

The proposed standard sets out a new framework to guide auditors, other professional accountants in public practice, and professional accountants in business (PAIBs) in deciding how best to act in the public interest when they come across an act or suspected act of non-compliance with laws and regulations. 

The development of the proposed standard was informed by stakeholder responses to the first Exposure Draft issued in August 2012 and other extensive consultation with stakeholders, including global roundtables in Hong Kong, Brussels, and Washington, DC in 2014, and discussions with the IESBA Consultative Advisory Group.

For an overview of the proposed standard, see the At-a-Glance document
