IFAC Response to the Monitoring Group Consultation
Feb 09, 2018 | Comment Letters, Guidance & Support Tools
International standards for auditing and ethics play a critical role in the global financial infrastructure, assisting in promoting economic stability and international consistency, and in doing so, enhancing international financial and capital flows essential to a thriving global economy. This is especially important for emerging economies.
IFAC is of the view that the Monitoring Group must engage in broad-based, open and collaborative dialogue with the key stakeholders—beyond the information session and roundtables already conducted—to discuss critical issues not addressed in this initial consultation, and which need to be considered holistically, in order to arrive at an agreed set of proposals that can be publicly consulted, and which have the broad support of all the key stakeholders.
IFAC is confident that frank and forthright collective discussions and engagement by the Monitoring Group, with IFAC, international audit firm networks, and international and regional stakeholders, will be able to reach agreement on these matters.
IFAC looks forward to collectively engaging with the Monitoring Group and other key stakeholders to continue this important dialogue and arrive at the best public interest outcome for the global economy.
