The IIA is conducting a special webinar knowledge briefing on the proposed changes to the International Standards. Space is limited to 2000 IIA Members for the live session (register here). A recorded playback will be available for anyone who is unable to attend.

The speakers include Andrew Dahle, IIASB Chairman, Partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Karine Wegrzynowicz, IIASB Member, Senior Director Of Internal Audit, Crocs Inc.

The webinar will be on March 7, 2012, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. EST.

The International Internal Audit Standards Board (IIASB) recently conducted a comprehensive review of the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and is proposing changes to some of the Standards. Part of the established process includes the exposure of the proposed changes to the public.

The proposed revised Standards will have a 90-day exposure period from February 20, 2012, to May 20, 2012.

The most significant elements of the IIASB proposal would clarify the responsibilities of CAEs and other internal auditors as well as the internal audit activity as a whole for conforming with the Standards; clarify the CAE’s role in communicating unacceptable risks; and highlight the option of self-assessment with independent validation as a mean of external quality assessment.

The IIA will be hosting a free webinar on March 7, from 1:00 pm to 2:00pm (US Eastern Standard Time) to review the proposed changes. This webinar will be available live to the first 2,000 IIA Members and via replay shortly after the event for members and non-members that are not able to listen live.
