Our take on the recent changes to the IIA Standards (free white paper)

Friday, November 16, 2012


Video: What you need to know about the changes in 90 seconds.

This month the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) released their latest revisions to their global standards.

These standards come into effect from 1 January 2013.

Much has been written about these changes, making it difficult to determine what's really important, if anything.

At first glance many of the changes may appear to be semantic, however there are six key changes that chief auditors and audit committees will want to be across.  

As a service to our clients and subscribers, we have developed a free white paper that summarises what is required, what was intended, what audit committees should be asking for and what internal audit functions need to do for best effect.

This report aims to cut through the clutter to get to those aspects that matter, and those that can make a difference.

We recommend that clients assess these changes early and use these as an impetus to improve the effectiveness of their internal audit functions.

We hope you find this helpful, and as always, if you need assistance, give us a call.
