The IESBA recently proposed changes to its Code of Ethics to promote the role and mindset expected of all professional accountants. To learn more about the key proposed changes, we invite you to our 60-minute webinar on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 8 am EST.
During the webinar, IESBA Deputy Chair Richard Fleck will provide an overview of the proposed revisions, which include:
Highlighting professional accountants’ wide-ranging role in society and the relationship between compliance with the Code and a professional accountant’s responsibility to act in the public interest;
Enhancing the robustness of the fundamental principles of integrity, objectivity and professional behavior;
Requiring professional accountants to have an inquiring mind when applying the conceptual framework; and
- Highlighting the importance of being aware of bias and having the right organizational culture.
Comments to the Exposure Draft, Proposed Revisions to Promote the Role and Mindset Expected of Professional Accountants, are requested by October 31, 2019.
