This alert takes the perspective of a firm implementing the suite of quality management standards for the first time. It will help you understand the changes you can expect to see and how those changes may impact your current practices and policies.
For those firms which have already established a system of quality management and who have previously implemented CSQC 1, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has prepared fact sheets which provide an overview of the changes made and new material introduced in ISQM 1 Quality Management for Firms that Perform Audits or Review of Financial Statements, or Other Assurance or Related Services Engagements, CSQM 2 Engagement Quality Reviews, and IAS 220 (revised) Quality Management for an Audit of Financial Statements. The Canadian standards CSQM 1, CSQM 2, and CAS 220 mirror ISQM 1, CSQM 2, and IAS 220 (revised).
This practitioner alert and our audit and assurance alert contain links to the respective IAASB fact sheets.
