Extended External Reporting (EER) Assurance

Objective

Extended External Reporting (EER) Assurance is used to describe engagements to provide assurance on different forms of non-financial reporting, including integrated reporting, sustainability reporting and non-financial reporting about environmental, social and governance matters. This video provides an overview of EER Assurance.

The IAASB’s EER Assurance project aims to enable more consistent and appropriate application of International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 (Revised), Assurance Engagements other than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information, to EER assurance. The IAASB plans to achieve this through:

• Developing non-authoritative guidance that comprehensively explains and illustrates how to apply ISAE 3000 (Revised) to EER Assurance; and
• Providing thought leadership on assurance issues in relation to EER Assurance.

In undertaking this project, the IAASB plans to closely monitor related initiatives of other relevant international organizations and collaborate with bodies such as the Corporate Reporting Dialogue (CRD), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI).
