As an initial response to concerns raised about situations when engagement partners are not located where the majority of the audit work is performed, including concerns raised by certain regulators and audit oversight bodies, this Staff Audit Practice Alert serves to remind auditors of the responsibilities of the engagement partner described in the International Standards on Auditing (ISA™).

The IAASB will continue to seek further information about the circumstances addressed in this Staff Audit Practice Alert to inform its work on group audits and quality control.
