The Handbook of International Quality Control, Auditing, Review, Other Assurance, and Related Services Pronouncements includes the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board's (IAASB) complete set of clarified International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) and International Standard on Quality Control (ISQC) 1 now in effect. It also includes the IAASB's standards on review, other assurance, and related services, a glossary, and a preface to the international standards.
The Handbook of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants contains the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (the Code), which has been revised by the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) for improved clarity and strengthened independence requirements. The revised Code becomes effective on January 1, 2011, with early adoption permitted.
