The IAASB’s Strategy for 2015–2019 describes the board’s three strategic objectives that articulate its vision over the medium term:

  • Ensure that International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) continue to form the basis for high-quality, valuable, and relevant audits conducted worldwide by responding on a timely basis to issues noted in practice and emerging developments.
  • Ensure the IAASB’s standards evolve as necessary to adequately address the emerging needs of stakeholders for services other than audits of financial statements.
  • Strengthen outreach and collaboration with key stakeholders in the reporting supply chain on public interest issues relevant to audit, assurance, and related services.
Please note, in February 2017, the IAASB released a Supplement to the Strategy along with its Work Plan for 2017-2018.
