Survey Consultation on the IESBA’s Strategy and Work Plan Beyond 2018

The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) is seeking the views of stakeholders about the key issues it should address in developing a new strategy and work plan beyond 2018. The input from this survey will inform the IESBA as it develops its proposed new strategy and work plan, which it expects to issue for formal public consultation in 2018.

This is an important opportunity for New Zealand stakeholders to share their views on how the topics should be prioritised, recognising that the New Zealand Auditing and Assurance Standards Board’s (NZAuASB) strategic objective is to adopt international standards where they are generally applicable and appropriate in the New Zealand context, and therefore, the NZAuASB’s work plan is directly linked to the IESBA’s work plan.

You can either respond directly to the IESBA, and/or you can share your views with the NZAuASB. The NZAuASB will consider all responses when submitting its response to the IESBA.  The NZAuASB encourages its constituents to respond to the survey, as it is important for the IESBA and the NZAuASB to focus their efforts on the needs of stakeholders.
