Recent corporate failures throughout the world have underscored the benefits of clarifying and enhancing the role of auditors in responding to fraud and suspected fraud as a means of enhancing public trust in financial reporting. These proposed revisions significantly strengthen the IAASB’s standard on auditors’ responsibilities related to fraud by defining the expectations in relation to fraud, delineating more robust procedures, and increasing transparency about the auditors’ responsibilities and fraud-related procedures in the auditor’s report.

NEW: Video Series Released
To help stakeholders understand the proposed changes, a new video series has been issued, Understanding Proposed Changes to the Fraud Auditing Standard. Watch the four-part series on YouTube here.
