Share the Post:

1) This is a critical time for professional accountants in public practice. Many standards are evolving, with none perhaps more important than the suite of new and revised quality management standards approved by the IAASB. 2) Three (3) new quality management standards, namely:

  • International Standards on Quality Management (ISQMs) which encompass ISQM 1,
  • ISQM 2 and the International Standards on Auditing,
  • ISA 220 (Revised)

will be effective from 15 December 2022.

3) The standards, aim to achieve a more robust System of Quality Management for firms using the IAASB’s standards and mark an evolution from a traditional, more linear approach to quality control. 4) The new standards introduce a robust, scalable, and proactive approach to audit quality management which is central to ensuring trust and sustainability in the audit profession.

5) There are eight (8) components of ISQM 1 and unlike the elements of extent of ISQC 1 that appear disconnected from one another, the 8 components in ISQM 1 are designed to be highly integrated. 6) The 8 components are:

  • Governance and leadership,
  • Firm’s Risk assessment process,
  • Relevant ethical requirements,
  • Acceptance and continuance of client relationships and specific engagements,
  • Engagement performance,
  • Resources,
  • Information and communication, and
  • Monitoring and remediation process.
