To ensure that engagement quality reviews continue to be robust and effectively support high-quality audits and other engagements, the IAASB has proposed various enhancements to engagement quality reviews. This includes a new proposed standard on engagement quality reviews that includes enhancements regarding:

  • The eligibility criteria to perform the engagement quality review; and
  • The engagement quality reviewer’s performance and documentation.

The requirements addressing the selection of engagements for review have also been strengthened and are included in Exposure Draft, ISQM 1, Quality Management for Firms that Perform Audits or Reviews of Financial Statements, or Other Assurance or Related Services Engagements.

This memorandum should be read in conjunction with the overall explanatory memorandum, The IAASB’s Exposure Drafts for Quality Management at the Firm and Engagement Level, Including Engagement Quality Reviews.

Respondents are asked to respond separately to each of the exposure drafts and the overall explanatory memorandum. We request that comment letters do not include tables as they are incompatible with the software we use to help analyze respondents’ comments.
