is an independent standard-setting body that serves the public interest by setting high-quality international standards for auditing, assurance, and other related areas, and by facilitating their adoption and implementation.

Want to know more about the IAASB’s Proposed Quality Management Standards?
The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) hosted a series of Webcasts on three interrelated standards that it recently issued for comment addressing quality management. The quality management Task Force chairs explained the proposals and listeners also had the opportunity to ask questions to the Chairs. Recordings of the webcasts can be found here.
Let the IAASB know what your thoughts are on the Proposed Strategy for 2020–2023 and Work Plan for 2020–2021. This is global stakeholders’ opportunity to shape the board’s strategy by commenting on the proposed draft.
The IAASB seeks input from stakeholders especially those with practical experience in extended external reporting, including practitioners and other experts involved in performing engagements, preparers of EER reports, investors and other users, standard setters and regulators.
