  • Illustrative examples; 
  • Relevant extracts from the standard;
  • Practical points for practitioners’ consideration; 
  • Tips on how to efficiently implement the standard; and
  • Checklists and forms that can be adapted to meet the particular requirements/circumstances of individual review engagements and jurisdictions.
