The proposed changes to International Standard on Auditing (ISA) 500 (Revised), Audit Evidence:

  • Clarify ISA 500’s purpose and scope and explain its relationship with other standards;
  • Provide a principles-based approach to considering and making judgments about information intended to be used as audit evidence and evaluating whether sufficient appropriate audit evidence has been obtained;
  • Modernize ISA 500 to be adaptable to the current business and audit environment, while considering scalability for different circumstances, including the entity and the auditor’s use of technology, such as automated tools and techniques; and
  • Emphasize the role of professional skepticism when making judgments about information intended to be used as audit evidence and evaluating the audit evidence obtained.

Proposed International Standard on Auditing 500 (Revised), Audit Evidence, provides a “reference framework” for auditors when making judgments about audit evidence throughout the audit.
