Mark Your Calendar: IAASB Consultative Advisory Group Meeting

Paris in the springtime is a popular place to be. The Consultative Advisory Group (CAG) of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) is offering a great excuse to visit Paris on May 11 and 12, by opening their meetings to the public.

Opening the CAG meetings to the public provides organizations, other than the CAG member organizations, and the general public, an opportunity to observe the discussion and follow the various points of view put forward. Attendance may help individuals to prepare responses or comments to exposure drafts of documents released by the IAASB for public comment, as well as helping the attendees better understand how the public interest is represented in the development of international auditing and assurance standards.

“The CAG is an integral and important part of the IAASB’s formal process of consultation. This step further enhances the transparency of that process,” said John Kellas, Chairman of the IAASB.

Following the May meeting, another CAG meeting is scheduled for September 11-12, in Toronto, Canada. Although registration is not open online yet for either the May or September meetings, more information is available at www.ifac.org/IAASB/About.php#ConsultativeAdvisoryGroup.
