  • International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants® (IESBA®); and
  • International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board® (IPSASB®).

2014 Handbook of International Quality Control, Auditing, Review, Other Assurance, and Related Services Pronouncements

The 2014 edition of the handbook includes ISAE™ 3000 (Revised) and Conforming Amendments.

To access an electronic copy of the handbook for personal use, purchase print copies, or find information on recent developments and outstanding exposure drafts, visit the IAASB’s website at www.iaasb.org.

2014 Handbook of International Education Pronouncements

The 2014 handbook contains the IAESB’s suite of eight International Education Standards™ (IESs™), including the re-drafted IES 7, Continuing Professional Development, IAESB Glossary of Terms, Framework for International Education Standards for Professional Accountants (the Framework), and three International Education Practice Statements. It replaces the 2010 edition of the Handbook of International Education Pronouncements. One of the more significant changes to the handbook is the addition of a new section that includes the newly revised IESs that have been approved by the IAESB, but are not effective at the time of the Handbook’s release.

2014 Handbook of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants

The 2014 IESBA Handbook contains the entire Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants. This edition incorporates several revised pronouncements that were published previously and are now effective—addressing a breach of a requirement of the Code, conflicts of interest, and the definition of “those charged with governance.” It also contains the revised definition of “engagement team” (effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2014).
