This publication was developed by the Staff of the Australian Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board (APESB) under the auspices of a Working Group formed by the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) and national ethics standard setters (NSS) from Australia, Canada, China, South Africa, the UK and the US1. The Working Group’s charge is to develop implementation support resources to assist professional accountants in public practice and professional accountants in business in effectively applying the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) (the Code) when facing circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This publication does not amend or override the Code, the text of which alone is authoritative. Reading this publication is not a substitute for reading the Code. The implementation guidance is not meant to be exhaustive and reference to the Code itself should always be made. This publication does not constitute an authoritative or official pronouncement of APESB, the IESBA or the other NSS organizations that form part of the Working Group.
